Please join us in welcoming October resident artist Darlene Deloris @love.lenalove Born in Atlanta, GA, in the 1980s, Brooklyn-based multi-disciplinary artist Darlene Deloris studied History and African American Studies at the University of Georgia and SUNY Empire State University. She uses a variety of mediums, textures, colors, & symbols to create portraits that give voice to the Black woman who is constantly transposing between a state of angst and of regality. In 2014, she began pursuing an art career. In 2018, she moved to New York City, where she flourished with the opportunity to instruct art classes. She has orchestrated hundreds of art projects for children aged 2-14 in public and private facilities. She is a teaching artist for Supermoon Community Artspace in Ridgewood, New York. She teaches adult classes several times a year with Supermoon and Tiny Art Space, also located in Ridgewood, Queens. In 2019, she joined the Brooklyn-based gallery sk.ArtSpace as the Gallery Assistant, now creating alongside the SK Collective as a founding member. In 2021, her work was selected by SaveArtSpace to be displayed on a billboard in Brooklyn, NY.
Please save the date for Darlene’s free public workshop on October 8th 6 – 9 pm | More details soon!
