Opening Reception - "You Feel Me?" Art Exhibition
This show will feature artwork that can be explored through touch. The work will move beyond the canvas, adding dimension to the visual experience. The interactive exhibit is a part of Visual Voices, a curatorial initiative intended to highlight emerging BIIPOC talent
About the curator: Juliet James is a self-taught artist and curator, born and raised in Jamaica, Queens. While her love for art began around the age of four, she did not consider herself an artist until much later. After earning her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at SUNY Albany in 2014, James began working as a teacher’s aide for the NYC Dept. of Education. While there, James exercised her creativity by conceptualizing installations that showcased her student’s work. As much as she loved her students, after four years, she decided that it was time to pursue a full-time career in art. Since then, James’s work has been featured in over 20 showcases from New York to Miami. During her time showcasing, she connected with Allure Art Studio, where she began curating in 2022. She has since put together nine showcases that center the Black experience, including highlighting the strength and multi-facedness of women, celebrating the versatility of black hair. James seeks to highlight artists that members of the community can relate to and to display work that they can see themselves in. She creates and curates for the preservation of Black culture and Black love in its many forms, whether it be romantic, familial, sisterhood, or self.
