About this event

Black Art In America is pleased to present "Her Voice Sings" and "If Only the Patch Quilt Could Talk", sponsored by The BAIA Foundation. These juxtaposing exhibitions, which run from February 16th to March 25, appropriately intersect with Black History Month and Women's History Month. The exhibits exemplify BAIA's ongoing mission to document, preserve and promote the contributions of the African American Art community.

"Her Voice Sings" is a group exhibit showcasing a range of creative expression of works by women artists. The collection includes paintings, mixed media, textile, sculpture and quilts. Featured works are by artists local to Atlanta and by contemporary emerging and seasoned artists from around the nation.

"If Only the Patchwork Could Talk" is a Heart Disease Awareness Initiative. What happens when you select 20 women who have experienced a traumatic medical ordeal to sit at the table, share, then create? If Only the Patchwork Could Talk symbolizes the connection of creative expression through art to both the women and the community with a relevant composition of images and words coordinated by Marvel Micheale.
