About this Event

The Pink Blanket event is the 1st art show for Artist Robinne Adams-Smith. Showcasing various styles of painting all celebrating and displaying the empowering essence of black women.

"The pink blanket felt like it symbolized a feminine security. Like a mother's hug, soft but strong. I actually dont like the color pink but found it a recurring theme in my paintings. I believe the the color pink spoke to me during prep for the show. Its the color of Erzulie, this was my healing." Adams-Smith says when asked about the event title/theme.

A born artist, this was something that always came easy to Robinne. Sometimes so easy, it was almost magic. After going through a decade of deep depression, dropping out of art school, her daughter being diagnosed with cancer, she began to search for ways to treat herself without being zombied by medications everyday. Her strategy was to go back to the times she was most at peace. Those memories ALWAYS included her art or love for it. Using that as a starting point, she began to release the decade worth of art stored in her head. Years later, she's now debuting her craft for the first time.

The Pink Blanket event is taking donations of blankets to donate to the local homeless shelters for free admission. Cover charge is $12

Food and drinks will be served.
