Krystle Lemonias, Jamaican-born and Tampa-based, believes immigrant Black communities contribute richly to the United States’ cultural diversity and the workforce, despite the barriers faced.
Her artwork explores primarily women’s domestic-labor contributions that play an integral role in the function of our society. She uses found materials, printmaking methods and iconography to stitch together these themes with personal narratives.
Lemonias earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in printmaking from New Jersey City University in 2018, and is currently a Master of Fine Arts candidate at the University of South Florida.
She will speak about her work as part of the Dr. Charles White Speaker Series at 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 12, at the Noble “Thin Man” Watts Amphitheater, at 322 S. Clara Ave. in DeLand. Masks are required. The event is free. The talk will also be available through Zoom. To register for either format, visit www.tinyurl.com/aama-registration.
