Majesty

Fri., Nov. 16, 7 p.m.

All that glitters is gold. Artist Jason H. Phillips takes the gilded age of expression into 2018 by celebrating the power of women, adorning each image in his latest show, Majesty, with stunning 23-karat gold leaf. The owner of Detroit Ink Spot Tattoo Studio and co-founder of the Black Tattoo Art and Music Expo, Phillips has dedicated his mixed-media approach (and fine arts education) to furthering the conversation regarding the African-American experience. This solo exhibit will highlight Phillips’ “Black Girl Magic” oil painting series along with new works. free

Deliberate Misunderstandings: Embroidered Found Photographs

Kate Silvio: 'You can never go home again'

Through Nov. 24, 6 p.m.

In a new solo show, artist Kate Silvio — a woman “on the cusp of what society defines as ‘middle age,’” according to a press release — offers new works that reflect upon aging, self-acceptance, and motherhood. “How did I get here?” Silvio writes in an artist statement. “Was it an action or a reaction? The realization is that you may not be able to recall the exact moment when you made these decisions, but it must be you who made them.” The sculptor, a College for Creative Studies alum who now lives in Grand Rapids, creates multimedia works made from metals, rubber, felt, and wood, among other materials.

After an attack influenced by her race, a university professor wants to forget about it and move on with her life. When her (white) roommate and the dean of the school push her to "make an example of it," she finds herself suddenly roped into planning a diversity day, trying to convince her roommate not to plan a sit-in, and attempting to maintain her sanity as the racial threats begin to escalate. Well-Intentioned White People explores how some people deal with discrimination not necessarily directed at them and how their "good intentions" can sometimes be just as problematic. $17-$22
