I first came across Donna Angers work when we were in an exhibition curated by Lili Bernard together at Watts Towers Arts Center. Her “Study in Pink and Blue” was in one of the main galleries there in the huge and wonderful BAILA CON DUENDE exhibition last year. This large work was mesmerizing to me and I have been a fan ever since. An upcoming opportunity to see her amazing work will be at the Dysonna City Art Gallery for an opening Feb. 1st from 7 – 9pm. The exhibition will be up until the 25th, see the link for gallery hours and address.

A look at the influence of African Art on the work of an African American Sculptor
January 20 – August 11, 2013
“Charles Tatum began his career as an artist sculpting and designing in wood in the late 1960’s after he completed his service in the US Navy. While visiting family in the Los Angeles area, he met a group of sculptors at the Watts Towers Arts Center and the Compton Communicative Arts Academy which included John Outterbridge, Noah Purifoy, Judson Powell and Charles Dickson. He learned from them at a time when they were actively exploring African motifs, sculpting techniques, and assemblage in relation to modern African American sculpture.” From the Charles H. Tatum study guide available at Watts Towers Art Center.
