JULES ARTHUR’s painting “Gullah Dance of Freedom”

18 Jun

Fresh off the easel – a new painting by NYC based artist JULES ARTHUR!  Stop by the gallery to view “Gullah Dance of Freedom” 40″x30″, oil & mixed media on canvas & wood.

Arthur’s inspiration for the piece is story telling  through Alvin Alley’s dance pieces.  The dance company revisits folklore  and story telling from the African diaspora. His painting is a story  told through dance about the rich heritage and cultural aspects of the  Gullah people of Sea Island.
