Alabama native son, Michael Banks, makes a guest appearance at Jeanine Taylor Folk Art in Historic Downtown Sanford for the opening reception of his latest collection of work, Chromophobia.

Exhumed from the box of traditional material, Banks utilises liquid tar, knives, and found wood to create fervent compositions. Wilted flowers, descending angels, a piercing gaze and the reoccurring Anubis-like creature are frequent sights in the world of Michael Banks. Mortality and rising hopes are recurrent motifs.

"Ubuhle Women: Beadwork and the Art of Independence" features the ndwango (“cloth”), a new form of bead art that has been developed by a community of women living and working together in rural KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The artists use coloured Czech glass beads to transform the flat black cloth into a contemporary art form of remarkable visual depth. Twenty individual ndwangos and one monumental artwork are on view, as well as photographs of the Ubuhle artists.

"A Kingdom in Pieces" is an off-site community display on the ground floor of the Citigroup Building that features animals from the teaching collection of the American Folk Art Museum and works by the artists of Fountain House Gallery & Studio. 

Whether friendly or fierce, sublime or surreal, animals have captivated the imagination of artists in every place and time. A Kingdom in Pieces explores the influence of animals on a range of creative work. Coordinated through a collaboration between two Long Island City–based organizations, this global menagerie of diverse occupants tells stories, evokes emotions, expresses ideas, and teaches us about ourselves in relation to the natural world.

The exhibition is organized by Steffi Duarte and Sarah Margolis-Pineo, assistant curators, Self-Taught Genius Gallery of the American Folk Art Museum, and Ariel Wilmott, director, Fountain House Gallery, with assistance from R. Sarah Richardson and Ellen Quinn, Citi Center for Culture.

Yamamoto Keiko Rochaix presents its first solo exhibition of Delaine Le Bas, a cross-disciplinary artist from a Romany background. Paintings, drawings, texts, embroidery and other works with fabric along with a large scope of found-objects form a series of smaller installations that converge into a large, integral whole that spreads into the gallery space across two floors. The exhibition reflects what was, and is the world of Delaine and Damian Le Bas, her late husband who died unexpectedly on December 9, 2017, and is featured in Raw Vision 100.
