About the exhibition: When one speaks of a view, they are speaking about a unique vantage point or perspective. The View from Within provides a rare opportunity to do just that, enabling the viewer to look within the lives of two emerging artists, Trinidadian artist Nneka Jones, and African American artist Shannon Elyse, into the fullness of their thoughts, motivations, and meditations on their artistic practice. This exhibition is a partnership between A&H and the Tampa (FL) Chapter of The Links Inc., an international service organization established in 1946 that consists of more than 17,000 professional women of African descent. Both the artists and the works for this exhibition were selected by members of Tampa Chapter of The Links Inc.

Art and photographs by the artists: Twilight by Shannon Elyse
