The Wellington Art Society will feature artist Ramel Jasir on Wednesday, Jan. 15 at a meeting held at the Wellington Community Center. A meet-and-greet will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by a member spotlight and a brief meeting. Jasir’s presentation will be the highlight of the meeting, followed by an art raffle.
Jasir was born and raised in Portsmouth, Virginia, and has been involved in creative art since he was young. He is a self-taught artist who hones his skills through experimental learning, research and a passion to bring realism and authenticity to all his creations.
“I like to describe my work as a voice in color that resonates various emotionally charged motifs of love, family, universal human rights and politics,” Jasir explained.
Jasir continues to evolve as an artist and is inspired by the plurality of his cultural heritage and the diverse cultural and tribal art by Native Americans and the petroglyph art of Puerto Rico. He uses this beauty and diversity to reaffirm the commonalities that bind us as one humanity.
The Wellington Art Society is a nonprofit charitable organization open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts. For more info., visit www.wellingtonartsociety.org.
