At the Irwin House Gallery in Detroit, Gallery Director Misha McGlown works to curate, promote and support local artists, which is why McGlown decided to host Detroit-based artist Jonathan Harris‘ exhibit “TRIPTYCH: Stronger Together,” at the gallery. The exhibit also featuring emerging artist Crystal Starks-Webb and pyrographer Terrell Jahaun Anglin, who bring sincere depictions of family as royalty and historical think pieces around popular figures’ spouses into the gallery space. Harris’ work itself focuses on the social commentary of experiencing and living in America as a Black person.
