    Whiskey, God and Women

    Artwork by Rodney “BUCK!” Herring

    Curated by Risikat “Kat” Okedeyi
    On display September 3-29, 2017
    Opening Reception: Sunday, September 3, 2017 . 1-4PM

    Facebook event for opening reception
    RSVP Here

    Whiskey, God and Women is a culmination of ten years of introspection featuring the artwork of Rodney "BUCK!" Herring. In this mixed-media exhibition, Herring highlights the tensions he must manage as a Black man in America: "I love, but have been conditioned to love only one way and I know that conditioning is a lie, yet I continue to follow it and have to fight that turmoil to end up sitting in the same space wondering what to do. Being a black man in America is a contradiction in itself. I must be one way and must think in one way, but my experiences and time have taught me differently."

    Curated by Risikat "Kat" Okedeyi, this is the first exhibition to be featured at MilkBoy ArtHouse. The exhibition will run from September 3rd to September 29th.
