    This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forbearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

  • Metalsmith Benchtalk with Up-and-Coming Jewelry Artist Charmaine Vegas

    in Art

    Our guest on Metalsmith Benchttalk on (TBA) up-and-coming  jewelry artist and metalsmith Charmaine Vegas.
    We invite you to participate in this live interview by logging onto the char-room or sending a message to Whaley Studios via Facebook Instagram or Twitter
    About:
    When Charmaine moved to Long Beach to finish high school and go to college, she continued to make simple earrings and necklaces with pearls and beads, but felt like there had to be something more advanced to pursue.  
    “I was getting my AA in fashion and I noticed they had some classes for metal smithing—I was very intimidated," she said. "There were big ol' hammers, machines I had never used... I took my first class and made a simple ring, and I proved to myself I could do it. That's when it hit me. That's when I got the itch.”
    Despite the pull to stick to her passion, Charmaine pursued a 12-year career in Visual Merchandising, hitting a crossroads in her final year that would give way to Bless the Theory.
    She discovered the name Bless the Theory when she was reading an article on adornment theory. A professor had written the piece and allowed his students to weigh in with their own ideas. One of the students had written something along the lines of, “I’m thankful for that theory and bless it.”
