Steve Prince’s “The Gospel Lesson”

Jazz: An Exhibition of Poetry, Prints and Photography explores the effect of jazz music on art. The jazz musician commits to hours of practice, pushes boundaries, and is spontaneous and detailed. Concurrently the visual artist expresses the same qualities. Each photo, poem and print represented in this exhibition is an intrinsic response to the word Jazz.

The show features artists Nan Adams, Antoinette Brim, Violet Harlow, Ngoma Hill, Shaunda Holloway, Maura Galante, Tenjin Falase Ikeda, Lori Miller, Frederick-Douglas Knowles II, Steve Prince, and Eric Sermabekian.
