Reginald Johnson Jr.

My art journey began as a child. I was two years old when I started to show interest in art. As the years progressed, my passion and desire grew more assertive. While young, my art teachershowed my work at the Board of Education and entered it in art fairs in Memphis. Transitioning to college, indulging in art, and being around diverse artists have taught me a lot. I’m easily inspired and influenced by abstract or unusual creativity. Seeing people create works in all mediums while using a broad or narrow spectrum of colors, which still has a message or purpose, will forever be fascinating. The resources, opportunities, and ways my college has

influenced a young artist like myself are beneficial to my growth.  I want to design art to inspire buyers to feel determined as they accomplish their goals or to feel proud, encouraged, or energetic when they see my art.

Evelyn Sumlin

 is a Nashville based, self-taught artist who specializes in afro-surrealist and fantasy paintings, often combining certain elements of ancient mythology and pin-up. Sumlin creates ethereal landscapes, or “realms”, for queer black women to see themselves in. A common theme in her work is female sexuality, specifically its playfulness. However, there’s also its ability to empower an individual and intimidate society. The female figure has been her subject of choice since childhood, especially in her formative years when she was first exposed to anime and cheesecake art. The labeling of her drawings as “inappropriate” by peers and authority evoked a certain defiance that is prevalent in her work today. Evelyn has had the privilege to be mentored by influential Nashville based artists such as Omari Booker, Joseph Love, and Herb Williams. She was also given the opportunity to display work at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC), the Frist Art Museum, and work alongside other black girl artists on a mural for Slim and Husky’s Nashville location.
