Throughout the month of February, Affirmations’ Pittmann-Puckett Gallery will feature artwork from award-winning African-American artist Carole Morisseau as a part of the Ferndale LGBT community center’s month long series of programming in honor of Black History Month.
“We are so thrilled to have Morisseau’s work featured in our gallery this month. Her work is absolutely breathtaking,” said Social Activities Coordinator Rosalea Brown. “I would encourage all community members who haven’t had a chance to see Morisseau’s work to be sure and stop by the Pittmann-Puckett Gallery.”
Affirmations will host an opening reception for Morisseau at 7-9 p.m. Feb. 12 inside the Pittmann-Puckett Gallery. The reception is free and open to all community members. Light refreshments will be served. All pieces in Morisseau’s collection will be available for purchase.
The exhibit will run through March 1.
The gallery opening is part of an array of February events celebrating Black History Month. Upcoming events include a Spoken Word and Poetry Slam on Feb. 20 and a youth performance entitled “Trouble of the World” on Feb. 24 that will feature Affirmations youth program members performing literary works by historic black authors. In addition, books by noted African American authors are on display throughout the community center, and African American movies will be featured in both men’s and women’s film groups.
