Gallery talk Saturday, November 28, 2015 7:00-8:00 pm
Artomatic Education Room 3 8100 Corporate Dr., Hyattsville, MD 20785
Creative nomad, designer and educator, Tereneh Mosley of Idia’Dega: Elegant Ethical Apparel , is on a crowdfunded odyssey, connecting Indigenous artisans in Africa and USA, one bead at a time. Moving throughout traditionally Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) land in the Northeastern US, she’s connecting the vibrant community of Native American artisans with Kenya’s Maasai in a ground breaking partnership.
In the words of Mathew Lesko she’s “having the time of her life bringing these cultures together and showing them how to use capitalism to support themselves.”
Her journey brings her to Washington, DC November 28 to visit cultural institutions and discuss this global eco-design collaboration, building a new fashion system and challenging the notion of appropriation/inspiration. Meet Tereneh Mosley and join the conversation at Artomatic.

20 curators were invited to select 125 artists to use their own personal aesthetic and medium to transform a simple ceramic bowl, drawing inspiration from the bowl as a symbol of a space where healing can take place. The exhibition benefits Smith Center for Healing and the Arts, a nonprofit health, education, and arts organization that develops and promotes healing practices that explore physical, emotional, and mental resources that lead to life-affirming changes for people affected by cancer.Alchemical Vessels at the Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery (1632 U St. NW)

I’m a contender for a gallery space in the brand spanking new Anacostia Arts Center which opens at the start of the 7 week Lumen8Anacostia festival on June 22. Attendees of the opening festivities will vote on their favorite curator for the gallery space. The winner gets the entire space through August 10.
My show Familiar, explores the creative process within families of artists. The work of Deborah Shedrick and Denrique Shedrick will be featured during the festival opening. If you select me as the winning curator, the work of Winston Kennedy, Doris Kennedy and Coby Kennedy will be shown along with the Shedricks through August 10. In addition to art on the walls, smaller, unframed pieces will be available. Read More…
A while ago Bourgeon featured me on their site. (http://bourgeononline.com/2010/09/in-my-fathers-image-by-camille-mosley-pasley) Next thing ya know they published a book and included me in it. (Get the book. I’m on page 49.) Now they’re curating exhibits and invited me to show a few pieces at Tryst next month. Please come to the reception Thursday, May 9 from 7-9 pm. Bring a friend or three. I’ll see you there!
The show runs May 7-June 4 if you can’t swing the opening … or if you want to go back a few times.
