Out of Africa and into the jungle.....we survived a canopy walk on a suspension bridge above the treetops, watched one of our guides escape a snake bite and saw the most amazing Kenyan villages and countryside. We learned a lot today ......and had more amazing animal sightings.... I’m sad to leave this special lodge..... tomorrow we head for our last stop. #outofafrica2018 #bornfree #oliveismynewbestfriend #kenya
What a day! We conquered the suspension bridge above the canopy... watched our guide avoid a snake bite, saw amazing animals and drove through some beautiful countryside....and fell in love with Kenyan children. Travel is the worlds greatest teacher! #outofafrica2018 #kenya #amazingplace

Pruitt’s portraits of contemporary African American women incorporate science fiction, hip-hop, 1960s Black power, comic book culture and a romantic allegiance to realism. Conjuring the cultural influences that construct identity, Pruitt presents feminine strength from the inside, colliding with external forces to create a captivating and fantastical portrait. “Abduction/Annunciation” 2017 Charcoal and conté on prepared paper, 60x84 #OutofAfrica2018 Currently on view through March 3 #robertpruitt #afrofuturist #blacktothefuture
Trinidadian-born, LA based artist, Miles Regis says of his work, “I believe that it is important that my work be reflective of what is happening in society. My work reflects my concern, paranoia and desperation at times, but really speaks of finding solutions and finding healing; demanding it and fighting for this. Many of my paintings are my daily journals on my reaction to what is happening in the news headlines or can be deeply personal as far as socio-political situations affecting my family directly.” “Fake News” | Acrylic on canvas 53x37 inches | 2017 @milesregis This work and others currently on view as part of the #OutofAfrica2018 exhibition at #artvillagegallerymemphis
The calmness and serenity pervading this community were eternally disrupted by the Nigerian military regime in the mid-90s. Inhabitants of this fishing community were rendered homeless as the houses were destroyed, and the land, sand-filled. Replacing the stilt houses are skyscrapers and highbrow landscapes shared by cronies of the military government. They’ve Gone Fishing (Maroko, Lagos-Nigeria) | 2016, 36x48x6 | Adéwálé Adénlé Currently on view until March 3 as part of the #Outofafrica2018 exhibition #artvillagegallery901 #artvillagegallerycollectors
