Juneteenth exhibit at Fischman

June 7–30, 2024 @ Fischman Gallery

What does wealth and prosperity look like filtered through the eye of the Black artist? Artists in the Northeast Tennessee region were asked to consider ways in which wealth and prosperity could be framed, including health, family, love, money, jewelsand spirit as a few examples, for this year's Juneteenth exhibit at Fischman Gallery, sponsored in partnership with Umoja Arts and Cultural. Fischman Gallery and Umoja were interested in seeing the artists' vision and interpretation of wealth, their unique point of view, and how their art reflects their vision. The resulting exhibit, Artistic Expressions of Wealth and Prosperity, is shown at Fischman Gallery June 7-30.

The June exhibitfeatures paintings, pottery, glass, fiber and other artistic media from 15 or so artists from the surrounding region. Each artist was asked to submit answers to three questions: How does your work speak to Black Wealth and Prosperity?; What were you thinking during your creative process?; and What do you want people to know about your creation? The answers to these questions will be posted for the audience to gain a further understanding of what the artists wanted to convey.

"Artistic Expressions of Wealth and Prosperity" will be at Fischman Gallery from June 7-June 30. Fischman Gallery, 133 N. Commerce Street, Johnson City, is free and open to the public, and is accessible from the Commerce St entrance to Atelier 133. Hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
