Sistahs of the Lens (SOL or The SOL) embrace a philosophy of inquiry, adventure, and exposition in their art. Five African American Women – Sistahs -- came together to challenge, inspire, support, encourage, and critique one another’s creative works for the SOL purpose of improving their skills and stretching the boundaries of their individual and collective art.
The SOL is a diverse group of women from both coasts of the USA, bringing together the power and beauty of shared roots and distinct perspectives. The synergy of the group creates a positive, audacious spirit which finds expression in the photographs of each member. Capture the light, make the everyday exceptional, reveal the depths -- through photography

Please join us for a powerful one-night event at Alkebulan Cultural Center.
Renowned Altadena artist Chukes will show ten works from his most recent collection of new work titled, “Identity Theft”. This body of work challenges the misconceptions of human identity and the negative and deadly effects it has on Black people, and people of color.
This is not an art exhibit; this is a gathering of minds to help educate and bring a positive social change through the dialogue of art.
The works of Michael Chukes will be going on display nationwide.
But before that takes place Chukes wants to display in his home town. You owe it to yourself to view these pieces before they leave So. Cal. Check chukesart.com to get a feel for the talent and passion of this amazing local artist and join in on a very important dialog. - Riea Owens, Alkebulan Cultural Center Artist Gallery-Curator
