Event description

Description

James Terrell and Zsudayka Nzinga Terrell are a husband and wife team of visual artists living in Washington, DC. They paint afrofuturist and surrealist abstract portraits, James painting mainly men and Zsudayka painting mainly women. Both artists have been featured in galleries and museums across the country. Over the last 2 years they have released a line of home goods and clothing featuring their art. Their daughter is also a professional artist and jewelry designer with her own line, Satra Nudara. James is also a musician with a band called, the Color of Sound. Zsudayka is a jewelry and accessory designer and serves as the creative director and curator for local gallery BloomBars. Together they organize and curate a DC citywide youth art competition, teach art workshops, host paint parties and live paint. They are working towards opening a black gallery and auction house in DC. They currently have several art receptions in their studio and home per year.

The latest exhibit featuring their work is called, Emergence Sea. This is the follow-up show to the critically acclaimed Born at the Bottom of the Ship. Both shows explore Black American Descendent of Slaves identities (ADOS) but this exhibit puts everyday life front and center and contains more narrative based art. There are portraits of singers, preachers, mothers, families, and friends. The exhibit is a snapshot into the many colors and tones of black life in America and what it means to be building a young culture. Emergence Sea will be on display through April 4, 2019 at Johns Hopkins International School Galleries.
