DALLAS - June 7, 2019 - PRLog -- "The Flagrant Rules of Ensued Emancipation" (F.R.E.E.) will run from June 11, 2019 – July 12, 2019, and the Artist Reception will be held on June 23, 2019, from 3-6 PM.  Goldmark Residents Missy Burton and Evita Tezeno will curate the show.

Artists featured in the show: Missy Burton, Evita Tezeno,  Jennifer Cowley, J. LeShae, Tyra Goodley, Valerie Gillespie, Tschaner Sefas, Aileen Collins, Kanyi Muraguri, Terrell Weathersby & The Unknown.

This collective is intended to explore the relativity of freedom and each artist's perception of it.  The works will feature photography, charcoals, mixed media, metals, paintings & multi-media.

"The inspiration for this exhibit came when Evita and I were approached by the Goldmark to do a show commemorating "Juneteenth", an American holiday that celebrates the June 19, 1865 announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas.  Personally, I've always wondered how it got to be a celebration considering Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation 2.5 years prior on January 1, 1863.  Then Evita and I started talking about how the news would have been received by slaves.  How would you feel if you found out you were free 2.5 years after everyone else had been notified?  How would you even know what it means to be free if you had never been free before?  What is our perception of freedom today?  We knew just by our conversation alone, that we had a lot to explore here and that the possibilities were endless.  Evita and I are very excited about this exhibit!" – Missy Burton, Artist

"F.R.E.E." opens June 11, 2019,  and is showing through July 12, 2019, in the John H. Milde Gallery located in The Goldmark Cultural Center 13999 Goldmark Drive, Dallas, Texas, 75240. The artists will be in attendance at the reception, Sunday, June 23, 2019, from 3-6 PM.  Gallery hours are 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Mon-Fri.  Saturday showings are by appointment only.
