Artwork just brought back from Haiti, as well as a large selection of art and crafts from Mexico, Peru, Cuba, South Africa, Nigeria, Burkina Faso and many other countries.
Haiti's artists continue to amaze with their vision and creativity, in many media - paintings, papier maché sculpture and masks, beaded and sequinned flags and mixed media sculpture made from an astounding variety of found materials.
There is new work by painters Magda Magloire, Fritzner Chery, flag artists Roudy Azor, George Valris, Mireille Delice and Marie Evelyne Sanon, sculptors Serge Jolimeau, Jacques Eugene and the celebrated artists of the Grand Rue, and the papier maché carnival mask-makers of Jacmel.
The show continued through January and February, along with the exhibit Mascaras: A World of Masks. Selected pieces are still on view in the gallery.
Read an excellent article on the state of Haiti's art following the Jan. 12th, 2010 earthquake in the March 18, 2010 New York Times: Out of Ruin, Haiti's Visionaries. It focuses particularly on the Gran Rue Artists, such as Eugene, Celeur and Guyodo.
