Tony Green Celebrates Black History Month with Gallery Pop-Up
Local influencer Tony Green, The Near Southside’s “Ambassador of Happiness,” is celebrating Black History Month with a Lottie Mae Lounge gallery pop-up at Kent & Co Magnolia Wine Bar, featuring the work of Fort Worth artists Charles Gray, Donnie Williams, Christopher Knowles and Teacoa Rushton.
The paintings of Charles Gray are personal meditations – on family, slavery, and the female perspective. Gray balances weighty themes with a stylistic exuberance that encourages relaxed and engaging conversations with each piece. Photographer Donnie Williams’ raw black and white images capture the essence of Fort Worth and its diverse communities. Williams, who shoots in film and is one of the city’s more prolific artists, has an extensive Instagram following and a series of highly regarded self-published zines through Deep Red Press. Christopher Knowles’ truly dynamic photographs also celebrate every day subject matter, while capturing the avant-garde elements of our surroundings. And Jewelry maker Teacoa Rushton’s creations are exquisite works of art. Rushton, who specializes in bead weaving, finds inspiration in photography, jazz and the contemplative properties of the materials he utilizes in his work.
