This solo exhibit showcases works by Chief Nike Okundaye, her transformation of indigenous Yoruba Adire textile symbols into works in acrylic, pen and ink on canvas. An Odyssey Through the Years amplifies one woman’s overarching goal to emancipate herself while giving a voice to the voiceless as she empowers families through their Nigerian roots.
The artist will be present for the opening reception.
