Art and the African-American culture have been inextricably linked since the founding of this country. Whether in song, dance or visual art, the African-American experience continues to be expressed with a passion born from spiritual beliefs, love, conviction, and trauma.
As the Quad Cities celebrates Black History Month, it welcomes the work of the well known speaker, author and psychologist Dr. Dwight Bailey. A native of Cleveland, OH, Dr. Bailey relocated to the Quad Cities in 2007. His art has been inspired by nature and his strong connection to the African-American experience.
Dwight Bailey offers a glimpse into his world through the art exhibit: “Kaleidoscope”. This exhibit reflects Dwight’s appreciation of the many colors of the human experience. His paintings capture the emotions of the patients he has seen throughout his career as a psychologist as well as the trials he has had to overcome as an African American man in the United States.
The vernissage is Friday February 19th, at the Phoenix Art Gallery, 1530 Fifth Avenue, Moline, IL. Doors open at 6pm. Music, wine, and light hors d’ oeuvres will accompany a show that the Quad Cities will remember for many years to come.
