Artist Charmaine Minniefield’s “Footsteps in Time” exhibit is on display through March 25 at the Stonecrest Library.

Minniefield, an art history lecturer at Spelman College, explores African-American ritual from a feminist perspective in the digital collage paintings.

Patrons can meet the artist and engage in the culminating discussion of her exhibit at a closing reception at 3 p.m. on March 25. Funding is provided by the Friends of the Stonecrest Library.

Minniefield’s visual art draws from indigenous traditions as seen throughout Africa and the Diaspora. Her work is featured in public and private collections throughout the Southeast, including the Auburn Avenue Research Library on African-American History and Culture and Fulton County Department of Arts and Culture.
