TCGM HONORS AWARD CEREMONY MARCH 26,2017
The Colored Girls Museum Honors the Ordinary Extraordinary Colored Girl everyday. Once a year for Women's History Month we pay tribute to an Ordinary Colored Girl in our community who exemplifies the mission spirit and practice of TCGM.
Last year The Colored Girls Museum honored artist Barbara Bullock’s personal and professional space making during our first annual TCGM Honors Award Ceremony. Barbara received , a one of a kind sculptural piece created by fiber artist and doll maker Lorrie Patrice Payne and a community of her friends, fans and family gathered to celebrate her. This year, TCGM Honors is pleased to recognize Ms. Toni Kersey.
"The greatest blessings in my life have been the people in my life."
The award ceremony is scheduled for 3pm March 26, 2017 at The Colored Girls Museum.
Toni Kersey is a mixed media fiber artist, designer, and professor whose work is informed by her background as a graphic designer. After studying fabric painting techniques her creative focus shifted to fiber art, beginning to make quilts in 2005. Since that time, Toni has concentrated on developing a creative language that fuses African-American quilt making with abstract painting, dying, beading and printing techniques.
Ms. Kersey is indeed a gifted artist --she is also a devoted mom,daughter, friend and community member.
Join us March 26, 2017 for a celebration of the Ordinary Extraordinary Toni Kersey!
