Dail Chambers - Studio Artist & Community Art - A Word

The Convergence + Exhibitions

After organizing with Yeyo Arts Collective, Solidarity Economy, Cowry Collective, Sistahs Talkin' Back and Progressive Emporium for our second bi-annual conference, Black Lotus Mobile, and the fine art work has been full of expansive experiences. During the conference we set up a healing station and a manifestation workshop. Participants were able to create a vision board, organize their dreams and evaluate their surroundings.

Prenatal artwork has been exhibited in two community spaces. In New Orleans, La. three pieces were exhibited for the Nation Breastfeeding Month event "Birth Something Beautiful." There is currently one large scale piece being shown at Community Birth and Wellness in Ferguson, Mo. as a part of their permanent collection.

I have just completed Doula Training and I am now a certified child birth educator, breastfeeding peer counselor and more. A doula is someone who assists a birthing mother before, during and after the childbirth experience. A doula is a community resource for mothers and families. The knowledge gained from this experience will further the mission of Yeyo Arts Collective and Black Lotus Mobile Healing Arts.

Another highlight of the summer is the showing of new fine artworks.  Phantom Art Gallery in Chicago, Ill. hosted my work as the featured artist for their September schedule. The installation, wall hanging work and animation: "Sankofa: A Collective Mythology" had plenty of great feedback and I look forward to upcoming exhibitions.

As the fall settles in, it is time to prepare for the solstice and the holidays. If you are seeking items for yourself or another please visit my online store at itshanapa.storenvy.com .

If you enjoy community engagement and the ideas and inspiration of others, you will love this video:

Dutchtown South in Saint Louis, Mo. has created a great project with community members and I am thankful to be an animator for this work.

Have a warm and wonderful fall to all!
