Queen: CCH Pounder Celebrates the Art of Black Womanhood With an Exhibition at Xavier...

If you watch television, chances are you’ve watched CCH Pounder. Over the past 38 years, the Emmy-winning Guyanese actress—who celebrated her 65th birthday on Christmas Day—has accumulated well over 100 acting credits, including recurring roles in the Avatar franchise, ER,The Shield,Law and Order: SVU,Sons of Anarchy and currently, NCIS: New Orleans. New Orleans is the location of not only Pounder’s latest television show but also her extensive art collection featuring exclusively African artists and artists from the African diaspora. An artist herself, her collection has been amassed through decades of patronage and her former roles as both gallery owner and co-founder of the Musée Boribana in her late husband’s native Senegal. Now, part of that assemblage has been curated into a 42-painting exhibition for Xavier University Art Gallery titled “Queen: An Exhibition.” It’s a celebration of black womanhood in varied mediums, centered around the painting The Birth of Oshun, pictured above..

A new art exhibition portrays Vladimir Putin as a superhero

In a new Moscow art exhibition titled “SUPERPUTIN,” Russian president Vladimir Putin is portrayed as, well, super. There’s a painting of Putin looking steely in a Superman-like outfit, wielding a gigantic “PUTINBLASTER” gun. In another portrait, he’s a cheeky-looking Santa Claus with a wink and a smile. This might seem ironic or tongue-in-cheek: Not so. The artists, curators, and visitors are Putin enthusiasts, expressing their sincere feelings for the premier. The pop art paintings and statues are reminiscent of propaganda photos that are often released by Russian state media, like Putin riding a horse topless or tranquilizing a tiger. (There’s an entire section of the exhibition dedicated to paintings of Putin cuddling dogs, horses, and other animals.) The exhibition opened the same day Putin announced his run for a fourth term as president (Dec.6). Watch our video to see a few of the pieces yourself. Let's block ads! (Why?)

Vladimir Putin Is 'The Face of War' in Exhibit by Ukrainian Artists

The vague menace of Vladimir Putin has haunted American politics for nearly two years. But in eastern Europe, Russia’s authoritarian president has wielded his influence for far longer and with a very tangible impact. The former Soviet state of Ukraine, in particular, has felt the force of Putin’s power. In March 2014, Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula after a revolution in Ukraine toppled its Kremlin-backed president, Viktor Yanukovych. (The territory is now claimed by both Ukraine and Russia.) Russian troops invaded parts of southern Ukraine after the annexation, and Kremlin-backed hackers have launched cyberwar campaigns to disrupt Ukraine’s government and public utilities. Naturally, Russia’s invasion, the ongoing conflict and the man responsible for both have incited responses from politicians and observers around the world. But perhaps one of the most potent reactions is a set of large-scale works by Ukrainian artists and activists Daria Marchenko and Daniel Green. Keep up with..

Even further, each has their own favorite multiple artistic outlets – whether painting, drawing, charcoal, collage, cartooning, print-maki..

Dunedin Fine Art Center balances small and big exhibits this winter

DUNEDIN – The Miniature Art Society of Florida will be invading Dunedin soon.
