The Spokane Public Library is hosting a special virtual meet-and-greet with local artist Tracy Poindexter-Canton as part of its celebration of Black History Month. Poindexter-Canton recently had her work displayed in a solo exhibition at the Liberty Building featuring pieces from her “30-Day Quarantine Art Challenge” in which she created a mixed-media collage daily for 30 days. Poindexter-Canton has also been recently featured via her series To Shalimar inspired by Toni Morrison’s novels. Both collections are being displayed again during this virtual exhibition via Zoom. The event also includes a discussion between Poindexter-Canton and local poet Stephen Pitters about their artistic collaboration in which Poindexter-Canton created a collage in response to one of Pitters’ poems. A Q&A session with both artists takes place after the discussion.
Tue, Feb. 23 from 4-5 pm • Free • Online; details at events.spokanelibrary.org/event/4860864
