Visual Artist, D. Lammie-Hanson Celebrates 25 years of Essence Fest with 25 Celebrity Portraits Rendered in Pure Silver in New Orleans

  1. 1. This is called "the Silverpoint Soulful Experience." The guests will be interacting with the silverpoint likenesses of Alicia Keyes, Aretha Franklin, Prince, Diana Ross, Mary J Blige, Janet Jackson, Missy Elliott to name a few. Lammie-Hanson, who has a huge admiration of Da Vinci and his techniques and skills, loved the idea of dark skin represented in precious metals. She creates each piece with 3 silver (.999) wires of different gauges, homemade grounds in black acrylic for the silver and a reflective light. When she discovered that 2019 was the 25th anniversary of Essence Fest, she felt that it was the perfect opportunity to create a body of work of music icons who inspire people because they "Dared To Be...". "There is only one Silver Anniversary, I am a Woman of Color, I create in Silver and I live in New Orleans. It is a no brainer!", says D. Lammie-Hanson. In truth, this is a one of a kind art show. All of the portraits will be conceptually designed and executed in pure silver. Lammie-Hanson is an autodidactic American artist who is known for her contemporary expressionistic portrait paintings. She is one of a handful visual artists of color as well as a female artist of color who draws with precious metals. Her emphasis is primarily on the psyche of the silenced individual. Lammie-Hanson’s iconic "One Eye Tulips" series is a vivid expression of this idea. Her very moving series addressing colorism called "The Beauty Beyond the Brown Paper Bag Test" celebrates the beauty of dark skinned people who have been denied privileges in the Black community based on their deep dark melanin. As a professional artist, Lammie-Hanson has exhibited in Geneva, Switzerland, Berlin, Atlanta, New Orleans, and Chicago. She held the position of Artist of the Year for Brooklyn Academy of Music's BAM DanceAfrica 2007 in Brooklyn. She was the 2017 New Orleans regional winner of the Bombay Sapphire Artisans Series. She has self-published two books based on her the first 20 years of her art career called "The Painting the Invdiual Psyche" and "The World of the One Eyed Tulips". Both available on Amazon.com In New Orleans, Lammie-Hanson has shown with the LeMieux Galleries, Jazz and Heritage Foundation Gallery, the Contemporary Arts Center, the Arts Council of New Orleans, Ashe Cultural Arts Center, the George and Leah McKenna Museum of African American Art, Ogden Museum of Southern Art.
  2. 2. In Alabama she has shown at the GW Carver Museum in Dothan, AL and the Wiregrass Museum of Art in Wiregrass, AL, In Chicago Gallery Guichard, Chicago, IL. The "Dared to Be... A Silverpoint Soulful Experience" is an independent art exhibit that is a celebration of Essence Festival in New Orleans and privately funded.
