Charlie Newton's The Black Bible On Display At Stove Works Through March 12
Wednesday, January 19, 2022
Artist Charlie Newton made his hometown of Chattanooga the first stop to unveil his inaugural traveling exhibit, The Black Bible. The art exhibit features abstract paintings that are inspired by stories and people from the Bible.
‘We don’t need to re-write the Bible,” said Charlie Newton. “We need to reconstruct our concepts percepts and precepts of the Bible as written. History, as well as Bible precepts and percepts, are for the most part of majorly European influences. The distillation of the historicism of the Bible has been dramatically and is being dramatically changed and reformed due to the diaspora peoples (in America) awakening to the false narratives put forth by white supremacy.”
The exhibition is on display at Stove Works through March 12.
The gallery is located minutes from downtown Chattanooga at 1250 E. 13th St., and it is open Wednesday through Saturday from noon-6:30 p.m.
