Thinker Makers Society will be free and open to the public on February 3rd, 2023 FROM 7pm-11pm for an exhibition entitled ‘Spirit Mediums’. The gallery, located at 320 Race Street in Old City Philadelphia, will feature a wide array of contemporary art from established and emerging Black artists, with a variety of mediums such as painting, sculpture, tapestry, and photography. The works will showcase the unwavering spirit and perseverance of Black people here in America.
Among the pieces featured will be a 76” x 102” Jacquard Tapestry entitled “The Gypsy Fortune-Teller” by Khinde Wiley, on loan from a private collection.
"We are thrilled to be showing works by incredible artists like Jay Taylor, Damon Bain, Joseph Jennings, Donna Grace Kroh, Kenneth James, Doriana Diaz, Lindsay Bedford, and of course Khinde Wiley. However, we are even more thrilled to be able to say that we will be showing ALL Black artists in a Black Owned art gallery for Black History Month. Anyone who has followed us knows that since our inception, we have and will continue to push for representation in spaces where we, Black people and people of color, don’t have righteous equity or inclusion, i.e. the arts. " said Miquon Brinkley, the owner and curator of the gallery. "We believe that representation matters, and we want to ensure that Black artists have a space where their art can be seen and celebrated, not only in Black History Month, but throughout the rest of the year as well."
The Spirit Mediums show opening event will take place on February 3rd, 2023 from 7pm to 11pm. Light refreshments and beverages will be served, and the public is invited to attend free of charge.
