Please join the Prince William County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2023, from 6 – 8 p.m., as we host a reception to celebrate the opening of the ARTfactory’s Black History Month art exhibit – Lori Ivey Alexander’s “Stories That End in Freedom.” This is a free, public event that will include live music and refreshments, and Ms. Alexander will speak about her artwork.
“Stories That End in Freedom”
Through the works in this exhibition, the artist explores themes of Black and Indigenous American perseverance, resilience and healing. The abstract paintings and figurative collages here were inspired in part by the fluidity and power of water and its ability to transport people across the world and across sensory experiences. About Lory Ivey Lory Ivey Alexander is a DC-native artist exploring history, memory and identity. Best known for her use of color, sculptural paintings and lyrical writing, Lory facilitates meditations on the richness of Black and Indigenous American identity.
