Emerging Artist Exhibition, Maya Matthews

Akron Soul Train showcases the beautiful sculptural works of Maya Matthews in its new Capsoul Gallery featuring emerging artists and special projects.

Inspired by her culture and life experiences, Maya Matthew’s head and face sculptures are a celebration of blackness. Her pieces explore the healing, freedom, and empowerment of black people through representations of hairstyles, symbols, and expression. The emotional power of her sculptures create a pause in time, asking the onlooker to gain a new understanding of not only history but the true beauty of blackness.

There is an opening reception Thursday, October 15th from 11am-8pm.  Show is on view through November 14th.  Reserve a time slot by visiting our website, or just stop and take your chances!  Masks must be worn correctly at all times.
