Artist Talk: Sunday, June 25 at 3 p.m.

The Auburn Avenue Research Library, in collaboration with Hammonds House Museum, presents "Lessons of Joy, Unbridled Wonders of Black Happiness Throughout the Decades" by renowned artist and educator K. Joy Ballard Peters. An emotionally vibrant retrospective of a Master virtuoso, "Lessons of Joy" is an ebullient visual celebration of lived Africana experiences that foreground expressions of communal happiness. Rooted in flawlessly executed Beardenesque collage techniques, Peters births extraordinary transcendent appliqu├ęs that manifest the spiritual essence and unbridled wonders of Black jubilation. This exhibition is presented in the Cary-McPheeters Gallery.
