written by Marshall A. Latimore
On an unusually warm Saturday morning in an old church-turned-artists-haven, visual artists Charly Palmer and Jamaal Barber are wrapping several of their pieces in plastic wrap while talking about their creative process and what inspires their work.
Both artists — Palmer, a painter, and Barber, a print maker — have multiple “Black History Month” shows throughout February. Barber has an exhibit titled “Bright Black” that opens Feb. 10 through Feb. 23 at the Southwest Arts Center. Palmer has an exhibit at the Auburn Avenue Research Library titled “Divided States,” that will open Feb. 18 through March 25.
