Exhibit on view through October 28. Free & open to the public. 👁‍🗨💬👁‍🗨💬👁‍🗨 #Repost @joelvincii with #nameredacted ・・・ “Commuting from northwest back to southeast was tough. I made friends with students from my school and would visit their homes. Some black and some white. They all lived in bigger houses than mine, they all had their own rooms, and some even had their own cars. Sometimes I didn’t want to leave northwest. I loved southeast and I consider it to be my home, but I could never understand why our communities were so different. I felt that no one ever explained why things were this way. “ *excerpt from my artist statement* ‼️ My solo exhibit will be up @thefridgedc until Oct. 28th. 27 paintings total‼️ “Heirs II” (two boys) 24’x36’ Oil painting

GOOD MORNING FROM #capitolhill #dc #capitolhilldc ⚔️⚖️⚒ Yours truly says “the revolution will not be televised.” Shown here: “Nat Turner” (2016) an older work by @joelvincii — one of 27 paintings from the artists’ world-premiere gallery solo show on view now through October 28 at @thefridgedc gallery in Washington DC. ⛓🛠⛓ From @wikipedia Nat Turner (October 2, 1800 – November 11, 1831) was an African-American slave who led a two-day rebellion of slaves and free blacks in Southampton County, Virginia on August 21, 1831. The rebellion caused the death of approximately sixty white men, women and children. Whites organized militias and called out regular troops to suppress the uprising. In addition, white militias and mobs attacked blacks in the area, killing an estimated 120, many of whom were not involved in the revolt; no one was arrested, tried or executed for these crimes. The rebels went from plantation to plantation, gathering horses and guns, freeing other slaves along the way, and recruiting other blacks who wanted to join their revolt. During the rebellion, Virginia legislators targeted free blacks with a colonization bill, which allocated new funding to remove them, and a police bill that denied free blacks trials by jury and made any free blacks convicted of a crime subject to sale and relocation. In the aftermath, the state tried those accused of being part of Turner's slave rebellion, 18 were executed, 14 were transported out of state and several were acquitted. Turner hid successfully for two months. When found, he was tried, convicted, sentenced to death, hanged and possibly beheaded. Across Virginia and other southern states, state legislators passed new laws to control slaves and free blacks. They prohibited education of slaves and free blacks, restricted rights of assembly for free blacks, withdrew their right to bear arms (in some states), and to vote (in North Carolina, for instance), and required white ministers to be present at all black worship services. 🕳🕳🕳 #thefridgedc #washingtondc #fineart #popart #history #heirs #juxtapoz #hifructose #lonelyplanet #wapo #nytimes #nymagazine #lonelyplanet #bythings #acreativedc #eastcityart #FREE
GOOD MORNING FROM #capitolhill #dc #capitolhilldc 🚢🚢🚢 Yours truly says “I learned something today.” Shown here: “Joseph Laroche” (2016) an older work by @joelvincii — one of 27 paintings from the artists’ world-premiere gallery solo show on view now through October 28 at @thefridgedc gallery in Washington DC. 🚢🚢🚢 From @wikipedia Joseph Philippe Lemercier Laroche (26 May 1886 – 15 April 1912) was a Haitian engineer. He was one of only three passengers of known African ancestry on the ill-fated voyage of the RMS Titanic. He put his pregnant French wife and their two daughters onto a lifeboat; they survived, but he did not. Joseph's daughter, Louise Laroche (2 July 1910 – 28 January 1998) was one of the last remaining survivors of the sinking of the RMS Titanic on April 15, 1912. Joseph's mother purchased first class passage for the family aboard the liner SS France. The Laroches learned of the French Line's policy stipulating that children were required to remain in the nursery and were not permitted to dine with their parents. Disapproving of this policy, they exchanged their tickets for a second-class passage aboard the RMS Titanic. 🚢🚢🚢 #thefridgedc #washingtondc #fineart #popart #history #heirs #juxtapoz #hifructose #lonelyplanet #wapo #nytimes #nymagazine #lonelyplanet #bythings #acreativedc #eastcityart #FREE
