Join us for HIVE's second Featured Artist Exhibit: The Blues Carries Me.

This show is an exploration of survival through art. The word "Blues" referrs to traditional Blues music as well as the various shades created using indigo dye.

Jennifer Steverson’s practice uses textiles to explore Black Southern culture, family legacies and healing in the African Diaspora. Her work uses Indigo, a plant that is sacred and highly valued in Nigeria and was also cultivated for commercial purposes on plantations in the antebellum Carolina’s.

Supported in part by City of Austin Cultural Arts Division
