The Ephemera Series is a collaborative collection of short-run exhibitions organized by a select guest curator. The guest curator selects the theme and the art for the exhibition. For our first installment of the series, The Kre8ive Shop has selected Dr. Mugabe as our guest curator. Dr. Mugabe is a retired educator, and art therapist, as well as a long-time supporter of The Kre8ive Shop. Dr. Mugabe has selected a theme focused on black women that will feature poetry and articles by black female writers. The exhibition will be cross-promoted between thekre8iveshop.com and artisttake.com. The Kre8ive Shop will provide a platform for the art and visuals for the poetry. Artist Take will provide a platform for editorial use.
