Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center Exhibit

I just returned from Wilberforce, Ohio where my art is being featured at the Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center, and well, I won’t sugar coat it. I met some super cool people, won an award and had a wonderful time sharing my art with the people of Ohio.

  This painting: Mamma Who Is That… that Museum Director Wash and I are standing in front of, shows how our elders used everyday things to past on education to the youth. In a lot of families, it is the grandmother that ends up nurturing the youth. Our little high fashion granny is taking her son to the museum to teach about former slave Peter Gordon. He was the first person to show the atrocities and brutality of the South to the north after he escaped from a plantation in Mississippi in the mid-1800s. Instead of going to sit and hide he chose to do his part to fight for freedom and justice for others. He helped free many slaves, educated aristocratic and political people alike on the horrible treatments of abducted prisoners on the plantation. 

The Art of Soul exhibition will be running till March 2020.

The Thomas African Art Collection by Vincent Keele

Thomas Collaction #4

The Thomas collection is a journey into the African culture through the grand collection of historian and fellow artist Mr. Ernest Thomas. I was moved to create the this body of work from the deep passion and education presented to me from Mr. Thomas. The talks I had with him about Africa and the artifacts he has in his collection, made a profound imprint on me and thrust me into creation mode. I must say, I have never been moved as much about African art as when I was talking to Mr. Thomas. This body of work is my vision and representation of the artifacts that I was introduced to. Today I bring you a new view of the African cultural mask in a rich vibrant style that will warm you’re heart and excite you’re mind.

My friends I present to you The Thomas African Art Collection by artist Vincent Keele!!!

Vincent Keele is currently the featured artist at the Onyx Gallery in Belltown, Seattle. Make sure to drop in and see his wonderful artwork.

How Vincent thinks about the art he creates:

“When starting a new painting I always start with learning. Learning about who and what I have in mind. I want to connect with the subject first and understand who or what that thing is all about, get in deep!!! I really want to see why I’m attracted to the person or place. For the most part, I want the viewer to see themselves or people they know in the paintings. It’s all about the connection and bringing out emotions through the use of what I call Dramatic Emotionalism. This kind of connection allows the viewers to go deep into the painting and want to know the story of that person or that place and in some cases, provide the frame work for them to formulate their own story.” -Vincent Keele
