Parma Art Scene

Prama Artspace & Gallery, located at 5411 Pearl Rd , opened an exhibition on September 23, 2022. of work by Gina Washington. titled "Monday's Child". It’s an archaeological dig into family identity, identity expectations, and the dualistic nature of Black Identity in America. This project will consist of photographic portraits manipulated through collage techniques, hand weaving, and embedded augmented reality. The images will illustrate the poem "Monday's Child." Each person represents their born day. The hand building/weaving of each picture connects to the physical process of raising children, and the objects will represent the people no longer present. Opening night the cool jazz duo of Alex Henry & Lovest Watson played. "Monday's Child" is supported by the Satellite Fund, which is administered by SPACES and funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Regranting Program. The show runs from September 23rd to October 16th. Regular hours are Sun, Wed, Thur, Sat, 2-6 and by and by appointment.
