Christ Church Cathedral: Friday, 30 January 2015

Art Exhibit, Opening Jan. 30 at Christ Church Cathedral, Celebrates and Explores Visions of
African-American Life Decades Apart

“Two Artists, Two Visions: Our Collective Story" opens Jan. 30 and invites visitors to explore the works of Allan Rohan Crite and Cbabi Bayoc. Crite and Bayoc’s works observe and document African-American life in their communities.

Crite (1910-2007) spent his life creating art that reflected the ordinary lives of African Americans in his Boston-area community. A self-described “artist reporter,” Crite showed them at work, at play and at church.

Bayoc's art also reflects a rich variety of subjects -- including African-American music, life and relationships including his 2012 project titled “365 Days With Dad,” a large and colorful collection of portraits depicting fathers engaged with their children. 

An opening reception is set for 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 30 and features a gallery talk and artist Bayoc. A donation of $10 is appreciated for the reception.

The art exhibit will hang in the nave of Christ Church Cathedral, 1210 Locust Street in downtown St. Louis, throughout February for Black History Month. It is free and open to the public. Cathedral hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to noon on Fridays. The Cathedral is also open Sundays from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. during services.
