In this special weekend solo exhibition, Beautiful But Flawed, Jamea Richmond-Edwards examines the complex lives of women in her family. Through paintings and drawings, this emerging artist grapples with issues faced by those she describes as “beautiful but flawed, praised but hated, and stern but fragile.”

Detroit-bred Jamea Richmond-Edwards studied painting and drawing at Jackson State University, and began illustrating for The Jackson Free Press and a children’s book titled ”Grandma’s Biscuits” by Robert Little while in college. Since graduating, Jamea has moved on to teach art to elementary, middle, and high school students while developing her own unique style of mixed media portraiture.
