Nellie Ashford: Colors Of SegregationFebruary 9, 2013 - March 9, 2013 12:00 PM - 12:00 PMMax L. Jackson Gallery, Watkins Building, Queens University of Charlotte Main Campus
Free and open to the public
Nellie Ashford is a self-taught folk artist whose colorful collages unexpectedly evoke a segregated past. Her images are a historical recollection of Charlotte in the 1940s and 1950s that give voice to cooks, maids, gardeners, carpenters and field workers. The message Ashford hopes they carry is this: "Remember from where you have come. Remember whose bones you are standing on." Sponsored by Friends of Art at Queens and the Office of Diversity & Inclusion at Queens. Following the reception, the Fisk Jubilee singers perform.
