The Power of Imagination at Results Gallery

Wow!!! What a wonderful and colorful collection of diversity of art by the members of BADC. My idea for bring this exhibit together at Results Gallery/Gym on Capitol Hill was to introduce our experience and heritage as people of color to this population. Results Gym gets 75% of DC residents visiting this location three to four times a week. EXPOSURE!

Gary Fisher, the Art Director of Results has been exhibiting artist’s works for over five years and this was going to be his last show. Gary said, “Out of all of the shows he has organized...this exhibition was the most diverse one he has seen”. From abstracts works by Ann Marie Williams, Joseph Bertram White and Henriette Mendo, to collage expression by Amber Robles-Gordon and Amy Bryon, along with figurative works by Prudence Bonds, Cedric Baker, and soft sculpture wall hangings by Francine Haskins and Shanti David. The photography were most impressive...from Harlee Little (Master Photographer) to Terry DeBardelaben, who gives you a unique perspective through her photography and wall glass sculptures pieces. Anne Bouie”s mixed media sculptures were a hit as well, even being the center piece for the Opening Reception food area. We also had the colorful artwork of Mekbib Gebertsadik. Wow! The movement in his paintings, one could actual feel.

Someone asked me why I picked this location to have a show. I told them that it was an interested place to exhibit and knowing Gary Fisher’s reputation in the arts, I thought this would be a perfect location for one of BADC exhibits. Results Gym gets a lot of DC population (black and white families) that are members of this location. We have to be willing to be accessible to newness and changes. As a member of BADC I believe in taking average of every opportunity and expanding on our knowledge by introducing “DEEP BLACK” as a new cultural movement in the art world.

“We are a new movement of artists that is ready to express our passion for our cultural and heritage...we are ONE!” We need to stay on course and look towards the future...the time is here!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the artists that was involved and for those who came out to support our members.
