Join us for an opening reception for our newest Contemporary Artist Exhibit, Perceptions: The Art of Barbara Brown King and Carole Morisseau.  This exhibition features the works of two career fine artists who have worked in the nouveau realist style. Through their work they have captured the heart and soul of the African American community with stunning images of faces in places that cause the viewer to reminisce in time.


Light refreshments will be served. FREE and open to the public.



This exhibition features the work of two extraordinary, multifaceted women who are career artists based in Detroit, Michigan.  Barbara Brown King's and Carole Morisseau’s works of art are presented together in this exhibition because of their natural proclivity to observe and record their perceptions of life in paint.


Both artists draw upon their skills, experiences, and imaginations to portray their subjects with beauty, dignity, and wonder.  They combine intriguing themes with subtle details such as the glint in a subject’s eye, a turned down lip, or a slightly raised brow, daring the viewer to interact with the creations and to form their own perceptions - thus, the title of the exhibition.  As you view the works of art, see whether you can identify with some of the people, places, and events presented.




This exhibition was organized and presented by the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History’s Contemporary Artists Program.
