Eye Shadow -- a Bebe Ross Coker BrainChild -- is an exploration of lived themes from a woman's perspective. Subjects include nature, self- development, feminism, motherhood, health & wellness, spirituality, friendship, community, social justice and more. The exhibit opens Friday, March 2, 5:30-8:00pm with a "Meet the Artists Reception & Gallery Talk" (as part of Wilmington's Art Loop) and closes Saturday, April 28.
Our featured artists are Marie Cousar and Bria Noel.
Marie has always had a passion for art and visiting art museums. Seven years ago, she began art classes at the YMCA with Michele M. Foster. After several courses, Foster encouraged her to study with Sarah Yeoman, a world-renown watercolor artist in Yorklyn, DE. Marie has studied under Yeoman since then and taken courses under Graham Barry, a UK watercolor artist, and at Delaware Museum of Art. This is Marie's first public exhibit. Marie and husband Bob are longtime Christina dance supporters, where daughter Stefani studied from pre-school through high school.
Bria is an 18-year-old singer, songwriter, musician, seamstress, videographer and photographer. As a proud Delawarean, she has participated in community events such as The Christi Awards, Delaware Teen Summit, TOVA Awards for sickle cell awareness, Wilmington Hispanic and African Festivals, Seaford AFRAM, Delaware Teen Idol and Duffy’s HOPE. Some of her awards include the Dennis P. Williams Mayor Award, Delaware Today magazine “20 Under 20” and first-place winner of the Delaware Prevention Coalition “Be A Thinker, Not A Drinker” video contest. Her song for the video contest, My Mind, My Life, was later recorded as “Already Defined” with Grammy-nominated producer, Herb Middleton. In addition, she was the youngest actress to travel with the national touring stage play, “Mrs. Independent.” In Fall 2018, she plans to pursue her career as an entrepreneur at The Savannah College of Art and Design.
