We are happy to present the First Friday Opening Reception for May 2019 featuring the work of Najhay Quick
Najhay Quick was born in Rochester, New York and describes his work as a fusion of contemporary and abstract art. His aim as a visual artist is to spread ministry through his work, to paint human experiences and trials & errors, in which we all yet fail; Visually bringing them to light, in hope to invoke the viewer spiritually. Quick’s work has been featured in various places throughout Rochester such as the City Hall Gala and Memorial Art Gallery.
In this vulnerable collection; artist Najhay Quick sheds light on his personal struggles with suicide and unhealthy living through abstract acrylics. The works contained in this collection of original art will reflect Quick’s experiences with structural racism and society’s attempt to hold back black men. This exhibit aims to motivate the mind and fill the heart and soul with positivity. The goal is for viewers to leave with a sense of peace and the inspiration to survive any negative experience they are facing.
