The Gathering

The Gathering (Sistas of the Sea Islands)  triptych measures 36 x 36 x 1.5 & 36 x 48 x 1.5 & 36 x 36 x 1.5  so that’s 36″ tall and 10 feet long for those that count on their fingers like I do.

This is the first 3 panel piece this size but there will be others as I really enjoyed the scale of this work and making it flow from one canvas to the next. 

This is a fun piece.  Hats are fun and so is getting “dressed up” to go to the beach.  Women are usually celebrating when coming together socially but there will be serious conversations here too.  Hopefully the connections made will be a force driving the continuing dialogue about Gullah-Geechee culture and spreading awareness of the land rights issues to a larger audience.  In the meantime, feel the sun on your shoulders and listen to the music the waves are making in participatory celebration of the Sista’s visit to the Gullah Coast.

I have already been asked about selling one canvas without her sisters – and I will be happy to paint a single for you – but these women stay together for this Gathering.  Thank you
