Kaleidoscope: My Culture, My Pride Dionne H.E. Polite

December 1, 2022 - January 20, 2023

December 1, 2022 | Artist Reception @ 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.

January 18, 2023 | Artist Talk @ 3:00 p.m.  

Polite is a self-taught artist who originally hails from Guyana. Shortly after immigrating to the United States in her early childhood, she discontinued many creative pursuits to concentrate on the responsibilities of being the oldest child, especially daughter, within her family. She returned to making paintings again as an adult a few years ago; at first, to connect with her aging parents, and then later, to help grieve through both of their deaths, which happened within the same year. Her artwork often showcases her diverse and eclectic family, culture, and history, especially poignant experiences from her early childhood in Guyana to more recent imagery from her current daily life here in South Florida. Through paint, she tells her story in her way.

“I am a self-taught artist who sees myself as a dynamic, ever-evolving, layered being, navigating through life while seeing and being in full color. Therefore, with the amazing love and support of my family and friends, I am energized and determined to explore, create, and display the kaleidoscope of my life through my art." -Polite
