Kevins ceramic work speaks eloquently about our culture, Kaplan says. His narrative drawings are about race, ethnicity, color all those things that we find difficult to talk about. Yet when placed as a narrative on a vessel, the work transcends those artificial barriers. Kevin is a masterful ceramic artist and elegant draftsman, and he makes us look at issues of color and race in a humorous way.
Color Blind, featuring twenty new vessels by Snipes, opens November 6 with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m.; the evening will include a program with local poets Ashara Ekundayo and Ayinde Russell, plus spins by DJ CaveM. Snipes will also host a community talkback at 3 p.m. on November 7 at the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library. The show continues at Plinth, 3520 Brighton Boulevard, through November 30; go to www.plinthgallery.com or call 303-295-0717.
