Black Warrior Mentorship Project & Fellowship Exhibition

SEE EVENT DETAILS
June 9-25, 2022 with opening on June 11 from 5pm to 9pm

Root Division commemorates 20 years of cultivating community-minded artists and arts-minded community. This event celebrates Root Division's Studios Program cohort, including Open Studios offering the community an opportunity to meet artists and learn more about our unique incubator program. The exhibition presents 7 Studios Fellows and features the "Black Warrior Mentorship Project", a culminating show from Aambr Newsome.

Front Gallery:
The Black Warrior Mentorship Project highlights four Black Bay Area educators and shares their experiences finding and curating safe space within their lives. Developed by Aambr Newsome, the show features four large-scale dimensional wood paintings, one in homage and dedication of each educator based on thoughtful interviews. The Black Warrior Mentorship Project aims to showcase how these mentors appreciate, motivate, and educate within their communities while practicing self love. The exhibition honors the belief that these practices offer healing, grounding, and help in not only uplifting the self, but in aiding these educators to be warriors in their communities.


Back Gallery:
The exhibitions highlight work made by Root Division's 2021-22 Studio Fellows during their time in the fellowship program. The eclectic array of work in the show includes painting, drawing, sculpture, and mixed media and spans themes of Black Joy, identity, and play.

The Opening Reception is free or pay-what-you-can and will take place on June 11, 2022. (Open Studios: 5-7 pm, Gallery Reception: 7-9 pm)
