“CANDYLAND” | Clarence Heyward

Candyland is named after the board game in which requires no strategy, players are never required to make choices, just follow directions, and the winner is actually predetermined by the shuffle of the cards. Sounds relatively close to the design of the American society we live in today. Only when you are a person of color those cards are rarely “shuffled” in your favor. As a Black father of two beautiful girls my responsibility is to teach them how to navigate the board, dealing them the best cards possible.

“Invisible Man”. Clarence Heyward uses the concept of green as a reference to chroma key technology.

Clarence Heyward (American, b.1983) was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. He is a painter and collagist whose work explores notions of the Black American experience.

His work investigates cultural truths, challenges stereotypes, and questions identity. Clarence believes it’s important to “paint his truth” and uses persons of color as subjects in his work as homage to his culture.

Now on view in the main gallery at CAM Raleigh.

Visit today from 12-5pm. Admission is free. Masks are optional.

ABOUT CAM RALEIGH URBAN SKETCHING CAM Raleigh urban sketching is a group dedicated to sketching from direct observation in the trenches of the warehouse district. With so many changes happening around CAM Raleigh at lightning speed, we have spent the better part of many Saturday afternoons with a sketchbook in hand capturing the stories and beauty of the changing landscape. We are a diverse group of varied cultural and ethnic backgrounds who are truly sketchy at heart. During the sessions we often draw each other in action. Our mediums range from pencil, pen, pastels,watercolor, mud, coffee, or whatever unique medium we can think of. All of these sketches were done on location during the second Saturday of each month with the fantastic support of CAM Raleigh.We are a regional chapter of the international Urban Sketching community. #CAMRaleighUSk #urbansketchers #usk #drawing #sketch #watercolor #painting #art #artist #raleigh #northcarolina #CAMraleigh #ContemporaryArt #Museum #RaleighNC #NorthCarolina #Artist #RaleighArts #ArtEverywhere #RaleighArtsPartners
