Collard Green Season: The Art of Natalie Daise

EPSON MFP image

Best known as Ms. Natalie from Gullah Gullah Island, Natalie Daise is a storyteller, both on stage or in the studio. Her most recent work, The Collard Green Series, explores culture, heritage and community, linked by collard greens, that staple of our meals and family gatherings. There were greens in every garden Natalie’s father planted. Please join us to celebrate the opening of this colorful exhibition on Saturday, November 19, 2016, at 7 p.m. The exhibition will be open through January 28, 2017.
