Chartrand's Treasured Cigar Box series invites you into a world of the global slave trade perspectives between Africa, Europe, the Americas, and America (USA).  These multidimensional assemblage cigar boxes (three boxes) incorporate recycled and found objects, keys, money, and hand painted paper.
This series bridges the gap by connecting the major Colonial slave trade shareholders of the New World.  Treasured Cigar Box (series) offers knowledge and research into the deeper meaning on how the exploitative, atrocious and brutal servitude, and harvesting of tobacco by circa 12-million African Slaves fueled the beginnings of the modern day corporations.


Chartrand is a national award-winning fiberalchemist (She placed 1st place in Textile Division at the Atlanta Life Insurance Company’s Annual Art Competition.); her winning work ‘Sailing on Motion’ is housed in the Atlanta Life Insurance Companies’ private collection in Atlanta, GA.  Four of her ‘Cigar Box’ (series) was exhibited in a group show entitled ‘Artists United for Peace’ at the San Francisco Public Library’s in 2010.  In 2010 she received a Certificate of Achievement from the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.   Finally, she is a published author of ‘Angel’s Destiny:  A Novel Story of Poems & Illustrations’  (2009) which is currently available on Amazon.com.
