Black Women of Print Speaker Series: Angela Pilgrim
Thursday, December 10, 5 – 6 pm EST | Zoom webinar, free and open to the public
Join us for our fourth in a series of seven online talks from the members of Black Women of Print. Angela Pilgrim is a NJ based printmaker, teacher, DJ, and founder of Fruishun and Fruishun Press Studio. Her practice incorporates screen printing, risography and textile printing. Pilgrim's primary subject matter is Black beauty, womanhood, and how Black women are perceived. Using patterns, bold complimentary colors, and illustration techniques, she expresses the powerful identity of women across the African Diaspora. Pilgrim’s work has been exhibited at Samford University, Jacksonville State University, the Petrucci Family Foundation Collection of African American Art, and Frontline Arts; it is also included in many private collections nationally and internationally. Her work has been featured in publications such as Pressing Matters and 7 inches for Planned Parenthood. Follow Angela at @aplgrm and @fruishunpress.
