The Art of Leanora Mims
Opening December 1st. First Friday
1st. – Middle Passage Women–6 ft across by 36 inches tall. Mixed media piece. African Print gold painted cloth on the front–hand-lettered poems by Maya Angelou and Langston Hughes stitched on the left side. Back is covered with photos of African and African-American women who changed America.
2nd – Masai Sunset/Tribute to President Barack Hussein Obama-Former Commander in Chief. The front is painted bow tie quilt pattern and the back is covered with photos of Former 44th President of the United States, Barack Hussien Obama.
3rd- Ascension this piece tells the story of young men who have left us to join the ancestors. I have included the names of the 20 children killed in the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The back is a tree covered with leaves in the shape of hands with the names of the children and young people killed due to suicide and gun violence. This piece is very moving and uses the element of Uncal which is to tell your story from the first person narrative.
