Friday, Nov. 8, at 5 p.m.—BRANDON—Tecari Shuman and Robert Black join forces on their mission to inspire a more creative and loving world. Though the artists use different mediums – Shuman a painter and Black in photography and collage, both only came to embrace their artistic gifts later in life. And now they have teamed up for the show Brothers in Art.
Shuman and Black first encountered each other in a chance meeting about four years ago that has led to a firm and continuing friendship. At this time Shuman was combating post-polio syndrome and the beginnings of Parkinson’s. Recognizing a kindred soul Black felt impelled to suggest to Shuman that art was the way to rekindle his creative passions. As Shuman ventured tentatively into painting Black became motivated to renew his own artistic exploration of collage. From this sharing each became a student and tutor for the other and the rest is history.
Shuman and Black’s exhibit, Brothers in Art, will be on display in the Compass Music and Arts Center Exhibition Hall from Nov. 8 to Dec. 7 with an opening reception on Friday, Nov. 8 starting at 5 p.m. The Compass Center is located at 333 Jones Drive, Park Village, Brandon. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Call 802-247-4295 or visit cmacvt.org.
