MOUNT VERNON ARTS & CULTURE COUNCIL BLACK HERITAGE MONTH ART EXHIBIT

In honor of Black Heritage Month, the Mount Vernon Arts and Culture Council, organizers of art exhibits shown in the rotunda and oon the second floor of city hall, will showcase two local artists who have worked hard to keep the arts alive in the city. Barry L. Mason and James “jaFa” Fair, board members of the Arts Council, will display their work in the municipal gallery space they  have been helping to maintain for the past year.

Mason, a graduate of The Corcoran School of Art and Indiana State University, is a photographer, painter, sculptor and graphic designer. He has worked on hundreds of art projects and documented many news and cultural events for more than two decades. This accomplished artist, who is known for his unique style of building and shaping canvases, has exhibited at galleries throughout the U.S., including The White House in Washington, D.C. His commercial photography clients include: GE, L’Oreal and American Legacy Magazine.

Fair, a photographer and videographer, is also an actor, writer/poet and computer graphic artist. He is a graduate of Howard University’s College of Fine Arts where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Cum Laude) in Theatre. An active member of ACBAW, Fair hosts local poetry and writers workshops.

An Opening Reception for the current exhibit will be held on Wednesday, February 13, 2013 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. in city hall’s rotunda. Jazz Entertainment will be provided by MoJazz Network, led by Maureen Wilson, chairperson of the Arts Council.
