"The Chitlin' Circuit"

"Art is Business" Curator Angela Mayes, Manager & Assistant to Milton Bowens

Milton currently has an exhibition titled "The Chitlin' Circuit" at The Brickhouse Gallery in Oak Park (Sacramento). The exhibition runs Jan. 10th - Jan. 31st


Keeping in theme of the exhibition we well be showing Classic Black Movies on Thursdays, we'll also have a comedy night, poetry night as well as a panel discussion and of course a closing art talk by Milton himself the last day of the exhibition.

In addition to Milton's paintings there are also paintings of a young art collective formed by Milton called The New Power Generation (NPG), which includes Allahiya Shabazz (my daughter (proud mother moment), Tashelle Miller and Aliyah Sidqe.  It's a collective of young up and coming artist. In addition to original paintings available for purchase of Milton's and NPG there are limited edition of posters and catalogs available as well.

We hope to see you at least one if not all of the exhibition events.  

The exhibition and events have received wonderful reviews with a nice write up in The Sacramento Observer and thus far a packed house on exhibition days.

If you have any questions please feel free to call or email me.
