MAY 18 – OCTOBER 19, 2024: “THIS WAY: A Houston Group Show” at the Row Houses of the Gregory School features works from Black artists that examine innovative ways of participating in the storytelling of their legacy and heritage of Houston Freedmen’s Town.

Artists include Imhotep Blot by way of Amaechina Blot and Studio KER led by Michael Bennett; Colby Deal, Nathan (Nate) Edwards, Dom Elam, Amarie Gipson, Priscilla T. Graham, Gem Hale, Ann Johnson, Charonda Johnson, Berlin Nicholas, Jaylen Pigford, Diane Reece, and Jason Woods (Flash Gordon Parks).

Each artist demonstrated unique approaches that have inspired the momentum of Houston’s Black art community since 2020, distinctly connecting Black millennials and Gen Z artists and audiences. Curated by Mich Stevenson, Project Manager – Partnerships, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and Houston Freedmen’s Town Conservancy, the artists center their work around the histories and present realities of the historic Houston Freedmen’s Town.
