The Longer the Feather Exhibition 12:00 am | Bailey Contemporary Arts Center
The Longer the Feather Exhibition

“The Longer the Feather” commemorates Black History and Women’s Months by featuring photographic work by Walter Griffin and paintings by M Jamesly Saint Louis. In his photographs, Griffin shares his fascination with Sunday Church Hats, which began at an early age when he visited and observed a milliner – a hat-maker – create a hat from scratch. These portraits of women wearing striking hats were originally shown in 2004 at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis to accompany the play “Crowns”, and it demonstrates Griffin’s long trajectory as a photographer. Jamesly Saint Louis presents a new body of work titled “An Anthology of Art”, which he defines as an exploration into virtual and literary storytelling through painting and poetry. “Every aspect of the exhibition is meant to expand upon the spectrum of Black creative expression”, writes Jamezly. His portraits depict Black lives and experiences as a way to add to history, and as an act of healing.

In addition, a call to images results in a video-loop displayed in the galleries, featuring members of the community wearing their Sunday’s Best.
