A Transatlantic Tribute In Art For Black History Month
Let’s stay in Dalton and head to Creative Arts Guild, which presents two exhibits to celebrate Black History Month.
The first exhibit - “The Profound Responsibility of Individuality” - features works on paper by post-World War II and contemporary African-American artists.
Robert Webb is one of the curators - and part of the exhibit comes from his collection.
The other exhibit at the Guild for Black History Month displays works by two leading artists in the African nation of Lesotho.
Presenting this exhibit: Murray Goodlett, a graduate of Dalton High - and an honorary consul of Lesotho, mountainous and landlocked by South Africa.
I spoke with Murray - and Amanda Brown, the Guild’s executive director, who joined us near the end of our conversation.
