The virtual exhibition Strange Fruit continues through December 10 at September Gray Fine Art Gallery with work by Àsìkò, Paul S. Briggs and Okeeba Jubalo. Àsìkò, a Nigerian-born British citizen, is a conceptual photographer immersed in a lifelong exploration of his Yoruba heritage. Briggs grew up in New York’s Hudson Valley and now teaches art education at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. He’s also an artist in residence at Harvard University’s ceramics program. Jubalo, an Atlanta painter, centers on illuminating the undefined and sometimes bitter truths of people of African American descent. See the exhibit virtually or begin a guided tour HERE.
