Welcome back art lovers. For those of you who were not at this years 8th Annual Gallery D' Estee 2010 "Art Is Infinite" which was held March 5th and 6th at the Delta House 4525 s. King Drive in Bronzeville it was the best yet. The event was there annual fundraiser which was a testament to the power of activism, passion, commitment and dedication to the contemporary fine art and artist of the African Diaspora.

The show reminded me of my travels to the east coast to the New York Black Fine Art Show. The level of urgency about collecting original artwork "Now" by artist of the African Diaspora was contagious and filled the room. It was electric! Packed with wall to wall lovers of Fine Art they were there not to just look , but they took home treasures that would last a lifetime. The exhibition included the works of many prominent artists from Chicago and from around the country  including Calvin Coleman, Abiola Akintola, Debra Hand, Felicia Grant-Preston, Dalton Brown, Dayo Laoye, Andre Guichard, Dana Todd, Joyce Owens, Stacey Brown, Frank Frazier, Philippe Gibson, Tony Smith, Bruce Jefferson, Tia Etu, Pearlie Taylor, Najee, Marva Jolly.

Parker was honored , Artist Tony Wade was this years featured artist,scholarship reciepient Eric Rashad, art institution recipient South Side Community Art Centers board president Diane Carr and Delta Sigma Theta, Chicago Alumnae Chapter President Taliva A.
