Albert , Chrystal Seawood

Albert, Chrystal Seawood

Opening reception: Thursday, Sept 12, 5-7 p.m. with artist remarks at 5:30. Reception sponsored by Art Krewe and M.K. Distributors.

Chrystal Seawood examines society’s scrutiny and judgment of young Black men with this new series of portraits.

Seawood “believes her work to be an act of justice, primarily serving those whose identities have been typecast through the rendering of other people’s imaginations,” she writes on her website, chrystalseawood.squarespace.com. The Forrest City, Ark., native lives in Washington, D.C., where she teaches high school English. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in digital art and design in 2008 from Henderson State University in Arkadelphia.

The exhibition will be on view through Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019.

The exhibition is sponsored by Simmons Bank.
