Delita Martin: I Come From Women Who Could Fly

Beau Rivage Resort & Casino Gallery / Gallery of African American Art

September 19 – November 29, 2015

Working from oral traditions and vintage and family photographs as a source of inspiration, Martin’s work explores the power of the narrative impulse. Her process of layering various printmaking, drawing, sewing, collaging, and painting techniques allow her to create large scale portraits that fuse the real and the fantastic.
