I was so pleased to be a panelist in “Virtual Listening Party | Mirrors and Windows: Art and Evolving AAPI Identities”. The event on September 23 was well attended and the Towson University students had thoughtful questions that led to deep conversations. We heard from Asia in Maryland artists Tima Aflitunov, Farida Hughes, and Jinyoung Koh and reflected on how their work provides a mirror and/or window into expressions and notions of AAPI identities. Hosted by TU Department of Theatre Arts professor, Mohammad Rohaizad Suaidi.

Exhibition: Asia in Maryland 2021, featuring the works of thirty-three Maryland-based Asian and AAPI artists, on view at the Asian Arts Gallery, Sep. 8 – Dec. 11, 2021. towson.edu/asianarts

Solo Exhibition by Farida Hughes Reviewed in Washington Post

“A Line Doesn’t End With Me,” by Farida Hughes was picked up in the Washington Post! Many thanks to Mark Jenkins for coming out to the Athenaeum and reviewing the show! He says “Hughes’s paintings are ravishing merely as color-blending exercises, but their layered depths have poignant human significance.” Read the entire review here.
