Artist Sonya Clark will discuss her new solo exhibition at CAFAM on Sunday, June 23, 3.00 p.m. As quoted from the CAFAM website, “drawing from her African-American, Scottish, and Caribbean roots, Clark incorporates both the actual hair of African-American women and culturally associated hair-braiding techniques into textile form and sculptural objects. Her symbolic and innovative interpretation of materials and weaving processes explore the layered historical and intergenerational contexts of racial identity, disenfranchisement, and definitions of beauty within African-American cultures.” For more information go to Craft and Folk Art Museum website here.
