An anthology of Joyce J. Scott's works on paper along with a short documentary film about the artist and a live-performance by Scott.
You would think that, with the number of activities revolving around Baltimore-based artist Joyce J. Scott, the Creative Alliance at the Patterson would just decree Dec. 7 a day in her honor. After all, she is noted as the “queen of beadwork” and is revered in many of the artsy corners of Mobtown. First on the docket is the opening of a print exhibit chronicling Scott’s work. The exhibit, which runs through Jan. 4, is followed by the premiere screening of the Jeanie M. Clark-directed documentary, An Authentic Life: Joyce J. Scott. After the credits roll, the night doesn’t end, as Scott performs alongside Kay Lawal-Muhammad, Lea Gilmore, Lorraine Whittlesey, and jazz pianist Eric Byrd. Good friend and founding director of the Center for Race and Culture at MICA, Leslie King Hammond, hosts the whole shebang, a night fit for a deserving queen. (Brandon Parker)
