Delita Martin: Conjure is a collection of spiritual portraits of Black women as Martin imagines their essences filtering in and out of the physical and spiritual realms. The exhibition includes ten large-scale mono prints that draw from spiritual and oral storytelling to cultivate a visual language that is unique to Martin.
Martin was born in Conroe, Texas and earned her BFA in Drawing from Texas Southern University and her MFA in Printmaking from Purdue University. She was formerly a member of the Visual Arts faculty at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock but left with the support of her husband to create her own studio, Black Box Press Studio, and create art full time. Having exhibited her work both nationally and internationally, Martin is in the prime of her career.
