ART EXHIBITION: "This is Us" by Nicole Alexander
Saturday November 25 @ 08:00AM - Sunday December 31 @ 08:00PM
Trinidad born Nicole Alexander brings her Art, infused with and insprired by Afro- Caribbean life and Culture to A Different Booklist Cultural Center. Join us as we welcome this awe-inspring artist to our space from Saturday, November 25 - Sunday, December 31.
Nicole Alexander is a self-taught visual artist currently residing in Ontario, Canada. Nicole’s paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolour reflect a unique Afro-Caribbean vibe. Having spent her childhood and youth in the two island nation of Trinidad and Tobago, Nicole’s inspiration for her paintings stems from her love of Caribbean dance, poetry, calypso music and most importantly from the beauty of her culture and heritage. Like one of her favourite mentor artists, Elizabeth Catlett, who endured and fought through racial barriers to make a name for herself, Nicole stands by Catlett’s message of creating art for all people to enjoy.
