Flickeria Artist, Espi Frazier, Lands Solo Show "Married to Art" at Gallery CA
Artist, Espi Frazier's solo show "Married to Art" opens at Gallery CA in Baltimore, Maryland on March 17th and run through April 21st. Produced by Flickeria and curated by Kirk Shannon-Buttts, "M2A" unfolds one woman's narrative, expression, creativity, and commitment during her 60 years in art.
In the 1980s the artist collective, Guerrilla Girls, asked, "Do women have to be naked to get into the Metropolitan Museum of Art?" Married to Art answers this question through Frazier's artistry and body of work, rather her anatomy. Creating in a range of materials including graphite on paper, acrylic, yarn and wood, Frazier's work has been displayed at galleries and museums throughout the nation, including the Smithsonian Anacostia Museum, Reginald Lewis Museum, Artscape, Howard University, and Maryland Art Place. Featured artwork in M2A includes the stylish and majestic, Church Lady Hats; the iconic and groundbreaking, Josephine Baker; and, the reflective and personal, Self Portrait.
Originally from Chicago and currently residing in Baltimore, Maryland, Frazier holds an MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and a BFA from the renown Art Institute of Chicago. An artist and educator, Frazier is an Art Instructor at Friends School of Baltimore. Frazier represents the best of whom America is capable of producing. She is humble, conscious, courageous, creative and dedicated to art. "The show Married to Art is a fact of my life. I have been making art since age five. It has been a steady and dependable ground to stand on. Art has helped me through life's unpredictable journey. Today, I am happy to say, I have not sought a divorce in 60 plus years. Art has been a lifelong wonderful marriage."
