A select body of work by Jamea Richmond. Jamea is new to Milwaukee; let this opening reception be a warm one by being present!
Portraiture has been a passion of mine since I first began my quest towards creative expression. Even at a young age, I have always been intrigued by the complexities of the human face, the curvature of the natural lines, the texture of the skin. Peeling away those outer layers of the surface and trying to see their true, inner beauty has thus been the objective of my work. In this series I wanted to portray the essence of femininity from various cultures, hoping to unite the common threads on the continuum of joy to pain into a garment that represents the experiences of the 21st century woman. I consider myself a traditional realist, and currently prefer to work in oils because I enjoy its fluidity. Several artists have inspired me such as Chuck Close, Archibald J. Motley jr., and Frida Kahlo. I hope you, as the viewer, challenge your perception of beauty and femininity, and of course enjoy the show.
Jamea Richmond-Edwards was born and raised in Detroit MI. She started drawing at the early age of 4 and has since attended several art programs throughout grammar school. Jamea attended Jackson State University where she received her Bachelors degree in Art. She has contributed illustrations to several publications, which include the Jackson Free Press, Jackson, MS and The Milwaukee Courier and has also illustrated two childrens books, Grandmas Biscuits and The Homecoming. She currently resides in Milwaukee with her husband and son and works as a fulltime artist and illustrator.
Even if you've been to Bucketworks before, we're sure you'll find something new this time around. Take a tour and see how we're constantly changing to work better for you.
Available Monday through Friday at 3pm, 6pm, 9pm and by

Meet to Move a Statue
Let's make a new micropark that celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King's achievements in sight of downtown Milwaukee, at the very racial and socioeconomic boundary dividing the achievement of Milwaukee's citizens. This could easily become a symbolic fulcrum of joining, uniting, merging and blending. The beautiful statue of Dr. King is currently located a few blocks north of Bucketworks, on the east side of the street near the curb. It's location prevents assembly of large groups of people, and it is for this reason that we wish to relocate the statue.
Attend an informal meeting to discuss.
5:00PM To RSVP, email info at bucketworks.org or call 414.305.1324.
