I Was There

Contemporary work by Ebony G. Patterson and Oneika Russell
January 9-February 27, 2009
Lexington Gallery Hop: Friday, February 20  

The Morlan Gallery will closed on Monday, January 19 for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Mi did deh deh, meaning ‘I was there,’ listens to the fresh voices of Patterson and Russell, Jamaican artists who examine the complexity of island culture by looking at identity, social expectation, Jamaica’s relationship to America,  and the phenomenon of dancehall.

On Wednesday, January 21, 12:30-1:20 p.m.  join us for a gallery talk featuring Me Did Deh Deh artist Ebony Patterson. Patterson will discusses her newest work addressing Jamaican identity with a focus on dancehall culture. This event, located in the Morlan Gallery, is free and open to the public.
