In celebration of African American History Month our Brightwood Branch Library, 359 Plainfield Street, will showcase the artwork of two Springfield artists, painter Gina Beavers and photographer Earskin Sloan. Join us and meet the artists at the opening reception on Tuesday, February 3 from 6-7 p.m.
Gina’s bold colors and strong images remain powerful while highlighting the subject’s beauty. Gina says her art “can best be summarized as homage to Byzantine stained glass and Mexican muralists. I love the bold and powerful cubist influences of Diego Rivera, but I seek the order of clearly defined color fields as in the works of the stained glass artists in medieval churches. Like both, however, my work is infused with vibrant saturated colors.”
Earskin is the owner of CSP Digital Images in Springfield, and his diverse photography captures excitement, introspection, and community spirit with remarkable balance, clarity, and focus.
The work of these two artists will be on display throughout February at the Brightwood Branch Library, and then will move to the Central Library Rotunda for the month of March.
