WE ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING TO TOAST TO
WELCOME TO MY ART WORLD
CIARRA K. WALTERS, UNDER MASS (BTS), 2021
UNDER MASS BY CIARRA K. WALTERS
Curated by Ciarra is a series of online exhibitions curated from my virtual collection of art works from museums, galleries, and the internet.
My first exhibition is Anxiety, featuring 32 works from over 20 artists (me included) that translate thoughts of life and death and feelings of anxiousness and fear. These works may heighten your anxiety or they may surprise you and calm it.

PHOTOS OF THE MONTH: FEBRUARY
BETHEL + BRANDON: BLACK LOVE
A few months ago I spontaneously took a few photographs of my favorite couple: my roommate Bethel and good friend Brandon.
Brandon swung by our house to pick up Bethel to run a few errands together. He surprised her with a bouquet of flowers. Bethel surprised him by dressing up for their last minute Christmas shopping. As she finished getting ready, I ran for my camera and snapped these moments before they sped off.
What I Love About the Photos:
The photos have an old school, classic feel. If Black dating companies were a thing in the 90s, this would be the commercial. I love the crisp, sharp look, the golden light of the sun, and overall, the happiness and comfort that exudes from them both in those moments.
These photos make me smile. They feel like a twist to a Kerry James Marshall painting.
Mid 2020 I read Instagram's policies and discovered their right to use your content without permission. I decided to find another way to share my art.
I do not make work for the gram and honestly, I do not like how I feel after posting my work on there. We don't need instagram. WE must take the power away from that toxic platform.
I created a monthly newsletter, an ARTLETTER, keeping you up to date on recent works, announcements, and overall, art that I want to share. It is filled with love, intention, and work that hopefully, makes you pause and think, instead of scroll.
This ARTLETTER is intended to bring you something you can feel. Work that helps you heal. You already know, serving y'all the real deal...when it comes to art.
