Solo Exhibition of Photographs Exploring the Intersection of Race, Politics, and Protest in the Wake of the National Reckoning on Racial Injustice

OCTOBER 3 – NOVEMBER 28

EXHBIIT DESCRIPTION:
Cheriss May is a portrait and editorial photographer based in Washington, DC. Her work tells the stories of marginalized people and issues — the "hidden figures” — and currently centers on the intersection of race, politics, and protest in the wake of the national reckoning on racial injustice. She presents 35 recent photographs in her solo exhibition Cheriss May: Beyond the Protest. May's work has appeared in O Magazine, The White House Historical Association, The New York Times, Bloomberg, Time, ABC News, The Today Show, and MSNBC. Her work is featured in a permanent exhibit: MFON's “In Conversation: Visual Meditations on Black Masculinity” at the African American Museum in Philadelphia. She is the president of Women Photojournalists of Washington and is an adjunct professor at Howard University, her alma mater. May was selected as an Adobe Education Leader for her commitment to creativity in the classroom, and she trains and speaks to educators across the country. As an advocate for diversity and inclusion in the media industry, she is often commissioned to speak about inclusive storytelling. Originally from Kansas City, MO, May earned her BA in Communications and Advertising from Howard University in Washington, DC.

Photographs in the Cheriss May: Beyond the Protest exhibit are available for purchase and can either be picked up by appointment at BlackRock or we can arrange shipping at an additional fee.

This year Fiber Art entries were juried by Caroline Kipp, Curator of Contemporary Art at the George Washington University Textile Museum in Washington, DC. Turned Wood entries were juried this year by Dr. Barbara Wolanin, Curator and Collector, who served for 30 years as Curator for the Architect of the Capitol in Washington, DC. The 21 selected works of Fiber Art feature both traditional and experimental materials which employ textile techniques that include quilting, weaving, embroidery, knitting, sewing, beading, and mixed media along with current innovations in this evolving medium. The 48 selected works of Turned Wood include both functional and sculptural pieces created using the lathe, hand-held tools, and a steady hand to carve original turnings which demonstrate a wide range of forms which can be achieved on a rotating axis.
