Hale Woodruff, Nancy Elizabeth Prophet, and the academy by Amalia K Amaki( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At Spelman College in the mid-1930s Hale Woodruff and Nancy Elizabeth Prophet established a premiere institution for art instruction for African Americans in the Southeast. While Woodruff is widely recognized for originating the Atlanta University Annual Exhibition of Painting, Sculpture and Prints by Negro Artists, his own artistic accomplishments have not been adequately examined. Although Prophet created an impressive body of work (most of which is currently lost or destroyed) and was regarded as one of the most talented American sculptors by American and European critics alike in the late 1920s and 1930s, her work has never before been the subject of an exhibition outside of her home state of Rhode Island." "Hale Woodruff, Nancy Elizabeth Prophet and the Academy brings Woodruff's and Prophet's lives and work into a critical dialogue for the first time. This volume highlights recently conserved works in Spelman College's collection, features more than fifty paintings and works on paper by Woodruff and, for the first time, presents all extant sculptures by Prophet. Highlighting what these artists were able to accomplish in Atlanta, Hale Woodruff, Nancy Elizabeth Prophet and the Academy positions Woodruff and Prophet as institution builders who challenged and transformed the academy for African Americans."--Jacket

Tales of the conjure woman by Renée Stout( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Renée Stout’s work explores the contours of the African American experience and the existence of an underground system of African-derived folk beliefs as transmitted from slavery to the present. This system, known variously as Hoodoo or conjuring, has its origins in herbal medicine, root work, and a belief in the spiritual attributes of plants and animals. For many years, the artist has used the alter ego Fatima Mayfield, a fictitious herbalist-fortune teller, as a vehicle to role-play and confront such issues as romantic relationships, social ills, or financial woes in a way that is open, creative, and humorous. Tales of the Conjure Woman offers a peek into a fascinating world ruled by superstition and ancestral wisdom. Fatima Mayfield offers her best advice and works in her roots. Renée Stout is an able guide, but she only leaves a trail. Her role is to awaken us to the unseen forces at work all around us - to heighten our senses. Through her art we are presented a prism that enables us to view a particular aspect of the rich traditions and cultural practices of African America
