Art Team Meets International Artist Amy Sherald
Amy Sherald, already well known before launching to fame with 2018’s official portrait of former First Lady Michelle Obama, spoke to a nearly filled Morgan University Center Ballroom on Thursday about her development and rise as a portrait artist.
Her portraits focus on issues of race and identity in the American South, and she shared with the audience, many of them art students, how African-American history and the representation of the black body in historic and modern images influence her work. Sherald was at Austin Peay State University as part of the Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts Visiting Artist Speaker Series.
We at the I AM INVISIBLE BULLYING & SUICIDE non-profit organization believe in exposing and educating both our youth and adults in the field of performing arts in which they are studying or perhaps may have an interest in.
Our team was afforded the opportunity to attend the workshop by international painter Amy Sherald immediately following the workshop the team got to personally meet the artist and to showcase their own personal designs to her. Amy Sherald's words of encouragement to the group was "You all are head of the game in your designs please continue and stay focused" .
