Nellie Ashford “Through My Eyes” Exhibition

July 2 – September 30, 2017
Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History

Charlotte native Nellie Ashford is a self-proclaimed folk artist whose work expresses cultural identity, shared community values and aesthetics. Inspired by the life that surrounds her and memories of her past, Ashford’s work incorporates a mix of materials that often reflect real-life experiences and depicts families, children, dancers and musicians with vibrant detail and emotion. Each work that she creates has a story to tell. Vintage fabrics clothes images of people who reflect varying ethnic, religious, occupational, age and gender identities. They identify and complement each other and their world.

Nellie Ashford is an untold jewel and it is through her art that she creates a world of historical expression – a visual, realistic imagery that reflects a time gone by, allowing the viewer to reflect and understand Charlotte – through her eyes.

Nellie Ashford is represented by Foster’s Art Gallery in Huntersville, NC.

This exhibition is organized by the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture located in Charlotte, NC.

The exhibition is funded in part through a grant from the Augusta Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
