Name: The Theresa Show art exhibition
Date: February 8, 2019 - March 29, 2019
Event Description:
The Theresa Show exhibition is free and runs from February 9 – March 29. Visitors can view works by emerging and established artists including: Stacy Arman, Geraldine Barney, Malika Crichlow, Eleanor Elkin, Judith P. Felton, Hetty Friedman, Paul Harrington, Lahyla Hyppolite, Patricia McSweeney, David Mynott II, Selena Narovlansky, Jeffrey Nowlin, Rachel C. Oswald, Salomé Deta Pitts, Etta M. Rosen, Susan G. Thompson, Johnetta Tinker and Karen A. Weinhaus. An opening night reception and silent auction will be held on Friday, February 8 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. Each artist is donating a portion of their proceeds from the silent auction sales to the scholarship. The show also includes special donations from fellow artists and friends Paul Goodnight and Reginald L. Jackson, Ph.D. The Theresa-India Young Scholarship Committee’s goal is to raise $25,000 to endow the scholarship, thus realizing Theresa’s dream that weaving remain prominent in the fiber community as a means of sharing culture, skills, and practices. The committee aims to raise $1,000 from the sale of raffle tickets at the event. Bidding is open on all art until March 29. Tax deductible donations to the scholarship can be made through the GIVE section of the MassArt website: massart.edu/galleries/frances-euphemia-thompson. Viewing hours for The Theresa Show exhibition (February 9 – March 29) are 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily at the Harriet Tubman Gallery, located at 566 Columbus Ave. in Boston’s South End, located at the corner of Massachusetts Ave. The venue is wheelchair accessible.
