Presence Zucot Gallery

June - August 22

Overview

Even in absence their presence can be felt. The love is different. Often realized years later after lessons have been put to use,  a good fathers love and support shines.  Fatherhood is complex. Often a combination of love, laughter, protection, and determining when to let your guard down and just be… Dad.  It’s sometimes built on the uneasy foundations of unresolved traumas spanning from slavery to now, years of suppressed emotions from being forced to choose family safety over violence, and the hope that the next generation will do it just a little better than the former.

This exhibition will explore the often-overlooked lives and emotions of the black men who assume the role of father biological or not who commit to protecting, loving, and honoring our community.

Chanell Angeli unveiled 4 captivating pieces this weekend at the opening reception of Presence: a group exhibition at Zucot Gallery in celebration of Juneteenth and Father’s Day.

Two of the works were acquired during the private collectors showing and the other 2 have multiple inquiries. One collector described the pieces as “hypnotizing and impactful images of black men rarely seen.”

Zucot partnered with Microsoft for their virtual exhibition. The gallery boast HD images of the artist works and an interactive layout with video interviews.
