Copper Planted Seeds
HANCOCK, MI – Finlandia University Gallery will present a two-person exhibit titled Copper Planted Seeds at the Finlandia University Gallery, located in the Finnish American Heritage Center (FAHC), Hancock from July 28 to October 5, 2021. Copper Planted Seeds is an exhibit featuring the work of Ashanté Kindle and Khari Turner, two emerging artists who create at the border of abstraction and realism. Kindle and Turner are storytellers and seekers, exploring their identity as Black Americans and creating work that is revelatory, celebratory, thoughtful and poetic.
A closing reception for the artists will be held in the gallery on Thursday, September 30 at 7 p.m., with an artist talk beginning at 7:20 p.m.
Ashanté Kindle and Khari Turner both created new work for the Finlandia University exhibit Copper Planed Seeds. After learning about the mining history of the Copper Country and the concept of sisu, the artists developed work that sought common ground with our local history and connected with their life experiences.
