National Coalition of 100 Black Women to showcase the art of New Orleans native Ted Ellis


WHO: National Coalition of 100 Black Women Greater New Orleans Chapter, Inc presents the art of Ted Ellis.  NCBW is composed of thousands of progressive women representing 60 chapters in 25 states and the District of Columbia.  NCBW's mission is to advocate on behalf of women of color through national and local actions designed to promote an agenda of leadership development and gender equity, focused particularly on the areas of health, education and economic empowerment.

WHAT: A showcase and sale of the art of New Orleans native Ted Ellis.  Mr. Ellis earned a BS in Chemistry from Dillard University before turning his focus to his artistic talents.  As a self-taught artist, Ted's style is a blend of realism and impressionism. His artwork is both nostalgic and uplifting.  Ellis has been recognized as a historical artist by the Amistad Research Center in 2005 and an Art Ambassador for New Orleans African Museum in 2010.

WHEN: Sunday, April 15, 2012, 4-6 pm

WHERE: McKenna Museum of African American Art, 2300 Carondelet St., New Orleans, LA 70130
