MIAMI - March 10, 2022 - PRLog -- Sage Causie is excited to announce the upcoming gallery for her photo series 'The Royal Painting". On March 26th, 2022, the gallery will be held at the Overtown Performing Arts Center from 8pm to 11pm. Lotus Projects and the Andy Warhol Foundation are sponsors of this photo project.

She received their WaveMaker Grant, which is given to visionary artists to help them finish their passion projects and share them with the community. As a black woman photographer, she believes it is vital to portray blackness in a variety of settings, which is why she created The Royal Painting. The concept for this photo series came from the Netflix series Bridgeton, which was a refreshing way to see POC in royal settings.

The Royal Painting replaces portraits from the 18th century with black women and black culture. Long acrylic nails are considered unattractive, and braids and afros are deemed unprofessional in the workplace. In a setting where black women aren't often seen, such as an 18th-century royal portrait, these same qualities are displayed.
