KQOA is Settling Down and Into The Art Palace for 2020

Kings & Queens of Art partners with Vince Robinson of Larchmere Arts.

I don’t know about you, but for me a new day and/or a new year gives me an opportunity to begin anew and so it is with Kings & Queens of Art (KQOA). As 2019 ended we expressed our gratitude to Richard Pace and his daughter, Catherine Pace, for the giving of their selves. Their generosity afforded us, KQOA and Black Local Artists of Cleveland Kuumba, the opportunity to experience a field of possibilities by opening the doors to Studio A of the Harbor Verandas on 9th Street from March to December 31, 2019. Again, Thank you Richard and Catherine Pace of Cumberland Development LLC., for the giving of YOU.

As much as I enjoyed the experience of 9th Street, I must admit that it became a bit much as I tried to keep the doors open on 9th Street and on Ashbury simultaneously. Many of you, my friends, were asking me: “When can I come visit you?” So, I made the decision to just settle down and focus on The Art Palace in its Glenville location.

Now 2020 is a Reset button for us. Sooooo, here we go with the 2020 Vision for Kings & Queens of Art. We will begin with “Free” Art Classes starting in March: Airbrushing with artist Rodney Carpenter, Trash to Treasures with Robin Robinson and Creative Journaling with Gwendolyn Garth. Origami classes by Xinyuan Cui. Meditative Dancing with Alexandria “Lexy” Lattimore.

We will be having weekly Line Dancing and monthly Artist Parties just for artists of all disciplines. A time where artists can come together to play, network or just hang out.

If you want to have your own art exhibit or if you have an idea and need space to manifest it, please consider The Art Palace. Also, keep in mind that Kings & Queens of Art is also mobile: We do bring art to YOU! Beginning February 1, our hours will be 1:00 to 7:00pm Tuesday through Saturday.

Also don’t forget to visit our Art Partner Vince Robinson of Larchmere Arts for Spoken Word.

Kings & Queens of Art is sharing a well-kept secret: Artist Santanna Watson! Visit this gifted and humble artist at Santanna’s Art Gallery, 6403 St. Clair Avenue, Cleveland. Hours: Tuesday, noon until 7:00pm. 216.352.9531
