Join Stamps in Color and Stamps Gallery for Making Medicine: a Guest Artist Talk & Workshop with Detroit-based artist Sabrina Nelson. In her talk, Nelson will discuss anew series of work consisting of intimate portrait drawings and installation vignettes, that explore notions of both who and what can bring healing to a community, a family, the self, and future generations. A public Q&A moderated by current Stamps student Lauren McHale Mills (BA ‘23) will accompany the event. Following her talk, Nelson will lead a hands-on workshop where attendees will visually answer the question “what is medicine?” To participate in the workshop, bring a sketchbook or journal.
Sabrina Nelson is an artist, curator, and educator who was born in the wake of the ‘67 Rebellion in Detroit. Influenced by Yoruba Religion, as well as Eastern and African philosophies, Nelson’s work is a combination of spirit, motion, and intimacy. The scope of her work includes painting, drawing, sculpture, performance and installation.
This event is curated by Stamps in Color and hosted by Stamps Gallery.
