Lessons in Color: A White Girl’s Education Art by Brenda Click

Join Cornerstone Center for Arts on Thursday, August 1 for the opening reception of Lessons in Color: A White Girl’s Education featuring art by Brenda Click. The reception will take place in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone from 5 to 7 p.m. in conjunction with August’s First Thursday events.

Growing up and spending most of her life in predominantly white communities, Click realized she had so much to learn about race and racism. Her research began by reading books both fiction and nonfiction, holding conversations (listening mostly), attending lectures, and watching documentaries.  Click’s exhibit tells a story of that self-study through acrylic paintings and celebrates the persons of color she has come to know and the gratitude for lessons they have taught her.

Brenda Click is a retired English teacher and media specialist.  She received her M.A. and B.A. degrees (both in English) from Ball State University. After earning her degrees and teaching for a few years, Mrs. Click joined the navy and served for five years. Later she returned to her home state of Indiana and to teaching. She enjoys spending time with her family, especially having conversations and traveling.  She also shares with her sons a love of the arts. Since retirement, she has devoted more time to art by taking classes in drawing and acrylic painting at Cornerstone Center for the Arts. 

Lessons in Color: A White Girl’s Education will be on display and open to the public in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery throughout the month of August.

For more information about the exhibition call Cornerstone’s Department of Education & Communication at 765-281- 9503, ext. 23 or visit cornerstonearts.org.
