As many of you know on February 23, 2015 Just Lookin's fearless framer and Eileen's 31+ year partner/husband/best friend Robert Burkhammer passed away. He is dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
I am so saddened to learn that artist, activist, educator Betty Blayton, 79, died October 2. Born in Newport News,Virginia, Blayton attended the prestigious Palmer Memorial, an African-American boarding school in NC. She relocated to NY where she earned an MFA at Syracuse University and exploded in New York’s fine arts scene. An abstract expressionist, Blayton’s Harlem presence dates back to Haryou-Act and its Arts and Culture Program, where she worked as a fine arts instructor and where she met and married Rheet Taylor, himself a Haryou music instructor. Blayton’s legacy is the Harlem-based Children’s Art Carnival, an arts collaborative and atelier for children 4 years to college level, with far-reaching tentacles and partnerships with the NYC Department of Education and after-school programs.
