“The Glorious Way She Moves – Black Venus,” new contemporary portraits by Barbara Felix, will be the featured art exhibition by the Carver Cultural Center, beginning Friday, January 22, 2021. This virtual experience is an inaugural body of work that showcases large scale expressive images of Black women from San Antonio. Felix’s work explores the fullness and depth of the female form, from youthful innocence to glorious maturity. Multiple illustrations from video stills capture the exuberance and individuality of each celebrated muse in her authentic dance. Felix also invites viewers to contemplate societal perceptions of race and beauty.
