February 2022 in the Gordon JCC Galleries



Olasubomi Bashorun’s work is featured in the Janet Levine March Gallery 




During the month of February, The Janet Levine March Gallery will feature the work of Olasubomi Bashorun. He was born in Lagos, Nigeria, but spent most of his adolescent life in Edmond, Oklahoma. He graduated Oklahoma Baptist University with two bachelor’s degrees,  one in fine art and one in family psychology. Bashorun had intentions to return to school to earn his master’s in art therapy but decided he would rather be an artist. He now lives and creates in the Middle Tennessee. In addition to creating original pieces, he teaches art, instructs ballroom dancing, and hosts creative workshops. He also spends time volunteering for a non-profit organization geared towards relieving homelessness.  

The Sig Held Gallery will feature the annual Akiva student art exhibit, Pre-K to 6th Grade. Akiva students this year are learning about the seven elements of art: Line, Shape, Form, Space, Texture, Value, and Color. Their work is inspired by artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Romero Britto, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Georgia O'Keeffe, Mary Cassatt, and others.
