The University of Arkansas at Little Rock is hosting an ArtWorks virtual presentation with artist Delita Martin at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 14.

Martin, an artist based in Huffman, Texas, received a BFA in drawing from Texas Southern University and a MFA in printmaking from Purdue University. Formerly a member of the fine arts faculty at UA Little Rock, Martin works as a full-time artist in her studio, Black Box Press.

Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. A solo exhibit of her work, “Calling Down the Spirits,” was featured at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. Her work is in numerous portfolios and collections. She is represented by Galerie Myrtis in Baltimore, Maryland.

Delita Martin’s recent series, “Conjure,” features deals with reconstructing the identity of Black women by piecing together the signs, symbols, and language found in what could be called everyday life from slavery through modern times. Martin’s goal is to create images as a visual language to tell the story of women that have often been marginalized, offering a different perspective of the lives of Black women.

During the presentation, Martin will speak about her studio practices when creating. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required at this link.
