A lecture about the healing effect that art often has - so many hospitals and medical centers feature my artworks on their walls because of that fact. It also speaks to the healing of Art Therapy for patients, clients, employees, and students. Part of the lecture is a presentation of some of SAINT JAMES' paintings - interactive in that the audience shares their emotional response to each painting.
Each woman has inspired SAINT JAMES in one or more ways. What the 3 women (all Black & FAMOUS) - an artist - dancer/choreographer - singer/actress - all have in common: they were Civil Rights Activists. This keynote speaks to their careers (in photos) and little known facts about their activism.
The business of art isn't taught in colleges/universities and SAINT JAMES often includes this talk/workshop in her artist-in-residencies. The lecture focuses on the business side of creativity.
"Synthia SAINT JAMES’ irrepressible enthusiasm and remarkably humble personality became the catalyst for an unforgettable commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr,’s birthday in Rocky Mount, NC. She dramatically engaged the audience throughout her illuminating presentation and every person left inspired. Dr. SAINT JAMES’ speech still resonates like an arrow trembling in the target."
"Dr. Synthia SAINT JAMES is a genius in marrying art and higher education. Her insightful wisdom is surreal in its accuracy; yet her authentic “mother wit” brings pragmatic instruction to her interactions with students and faculty. It is magical to witness her campus interactions and her final product on canvas."
"Dr. Synthia SAINT JAMES has set the bar quite high as our first “Artist-in-Residence”. Harris-Stowe State University and the St. Louis community were not only captivated by the boldness, brilliance and stories behind her artworks, but her candor, wit and humility has left an indelible mark."
"Synthia SAINT JAMES is a tour de force, an artist, teacher, and a scholar whose ability to connect with people is truly amazing. Having the opportunity to host Dr. Synthia SAINT JAMES as the 2015 Eileen Friars Leader-in-Residence was such a treat."
