CHICAGO- ONLI STUDIOS will be showcasing its upbeat Kwanzaa Happiness Print/Post Card at the Africa International House of Chicago this weekend. It is an oversized suitable-for-framing postcard with the Seven Principles of Kwanzaa printed on the back. The limited edition print-card comes with an envelop for holiday sharing.
It is on sell at the Trading Post gift shop of the DuSable Museum in Chicago.
Turtel Onli"Place Setting" is a framed oils on archival canvas-board, Rhythmistic painting that puts a new upbeat face on Kwanzaa. It shows an African-American young woman enthusiastically setting up an arrangement as part of a Kwanzaa celebration. The symbolism abounds as she is wearing the color indigo, the bowl is a zebra motif, the fruit is the health giving watermelon, along with the balance created by the placement of the two Ashanti Dolls. Serious collectors, curators or lovers of great art can learn more about this and other Rhythmistic paintings by visiting the ONLI STUDIOS web site.
