5. Welcome To Ethnographica
Like many other arts with folk or religious origins, oriental carpetsand african art appear to transcend their utilitarian function.
Explore Ethnographica Ethnographica Entrance ETHNOGRAPHICA is a place to explore the tribal arts of Africa and the great tradition of hand-knotted carpets and textiles of the Orient. Like many other arts with folk or religious origins, oriental carpets and African art appear to transcend their utilitarian function. At their best they display some of the overriding qualities of all great art an aesthetic power and a dynamic expression of the cultures which produced them. Objects of extraordinary beauty were, and in some instances, are still being produced by so-called primitive peoples. It is the creative force and vitality found in these works that fascinates the casual viewer and gives immeasurable pleasure to the seasoned collector. This is art in a pure form, art that provides a glimpse into the lives, traditions, and cultures of peoples that are fast changing as western technologies and lifestyes are adopted. Ethnographica is proud to share some of the rare and extraordinary objects held in museums as well as fine pieces held privately. Bookmark this page

African Artists on the Move
s January 31-November 30, 2003
Point of View Gallery
... Journeys and Destinations explores the important histories of migration and the negotiations of artistic, cultural, personal and group identities among African artists who make up the growing and significant diaspora of practicing artists now living in Europe and America.
December 6, 2002-March 16, 2003 Images from Central Africa, 18851960 examines how widely disseminated images by Euro-American photographers created and perpetuated ideas and sentiments about the peoples of central Africa who lived under colonial rule. Among the featured photographers is Casimir Zagourski (18831944), one of the most successful practitioners whose evocative works are highlighted in the exhibition. In addition, the exhibition explores the role Africans played in the photographic encounters. In some instances they were active participants, "performing" for the cameras and developing strategies to meet the photographers' demands. Africans also frequented photographic studios and took up photography to demonstrate their modernity.

    Contemporary African Art The Merka Art Gallery Please feel free to sign the guestbook and tell me what you think of my art! Personal Statement
    Welcome to Merka art Gallery and thank you for dropping by. My name is Mohamed Buwe Osman, a native of Merka, Somalia- an ancient historical town 40 miles south of Mogadishu. It is known for its beautiful white sandy beaches and stunningly colorful orange dunes which are reflected in most of my paintings.
    Africa gave me the blessing of exposure to the inspiring world of contemporary art. While attending Medical School in Europe, the beautiful culture enriched my curiosity in Classical Art. North America provided me with unlimited opportunities of enjoying not only the practice of medicine but as well as Art.
    My paintings are reflective memories of past experiences. They express the unexporessed and yet meaninglful concepts of life, the most precious gift to us by our Creator.
    My daily care of patients inspires me. It influences my creative skills. It teaches me everyday the true meaning of

    l ife, the gift of living and being surrounded by beautiful people, the joy of rediscovering the mysteries of the non replicable Art- creation of the Universe

    Spring Semester 1998
    Benjamin Caleb Ray Course Description: Each student will design an exhibition of African art for presentation on the World Wide Web, incorporating the results of the student's study of African art. The exhibitions will contain an introductory explanation of the exhibit's theme, a map of Africa locating the societies whose art objects are represented, images of selected African art objects, relevant field-context images, descriptive labels, and other explanatory textual materials. The images students will use are taken from collections at the Bayly Museum of the University of Virginia , the Fowler Museum of Cultural History , the Hampton University Museum Monday and Wednesday classes will be devoted to illustrated lectures on African art; Friday computer lab sessions will be used for computer instruction, digital image processing, and Web page construction. The course includes the following curricular components: a brief history of African art studies; African ritual and cosmology; analysis of African art exhibition catalogues; library research on selected art objects; the exhibition of African art in museum contexts; training in Web skills and image processing. The special challenge of the course is to create exhibitions of African art that attempt to be true to the objects themselves while placing images of them in a cultural environment of educational value to the exhibitor and the viewer alike.
