First Fridays Artist’s Reception
Black History Month Featuring Reverend FranCione Ph.D.
February 1, 2019
Join us for the first of First Fridays at East Bay – an open gallery exhibit for our in-house artists. Please come, get to know the artist and the work and meet us, your neighbors and friends. We will offer soft refreshments for you to relax from your busy work week and enjoy the beautiful, and often provocative artwork that is being featured every month.
In February we feature Reverend FranCione, Ph.D. Diving deep within, opening with delight; Ah! Divine Guidance — shows up as dream-inspired and mystical paintings. I find joy and reverence as spontaneous meanings flow, surprising me with feelings, images and ideas spilling forth often with symbols from my African American heritage. The paintings in this Black History Month’s Exhibit started from spontaneous strokes revealed after spending moments in the silence; then, I am surprised while seeing, feeling and opening to nudges, whispers and sensing guidance, “come this way!” – here’s a message: “Transcend your world!” And, another: “Invite our human family into greater expressions of LOVE showing up as PEACE, JOY, UNITY, DIVERSITY, FREEDOM & JUSTICE. Blessed BE!!!
Join us for light refreshments, engaging art and phenomenal conversations on Friday, February 1st at 7pm.
