Guest Curator, Tim Davis: The Story of Our Skin

The Story of Our Skin is an exhibition of figurative works and portraiture featuring people of color. Four artists: Luis Peralta Del Valle, Al Burts, Preston Sampson, and J'Nell Jordan, draw on everyday life and historical events and icons for their subjects. The artists transform materials to create their paintings and mixed media compositions in wood, metal signs, handmade paper, and other innovative techniques. This exhibit will show the strength and dignity of people of color from the past, present, and future.  

*Presenting exhibitions of artists at various stages of their career is one of Montpelier Arts Center’s core commitments. We are excited to invite an outside curator to help further this mission. We are thrilled to have Tim Davis, who is the founder and owner of International Visions Gallery and consultants, to curate this exhibition. 

About the Curator: In addition to a curator and gallery owner, Tim Davis is an artist and educator; he received his Masters of Arts degree from the University of Illinois, where he studied art education and fine art. Davis has earned many honors and awards throughout his impressive career including, an Arts Management fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, and he has worked as a consultant for numerous DMV arts organizations. Davis has also served on several boards throughout the Washington metropolitan area.
