Emergence Sea, an exhibition of paintings featuring works of visual artists James Terrell and Zsudayka Nzinga Terrell will be showcased at Johns Hopkins University on February 27 in celebration of Black History Month.
The exhibition titled Emergence Sea: The Identities of Black American Descendants of Slaves explores the identities of black American descendants of slaves and provides a peek into many colors and tones of black life in America. The artworks reflect everyday lives, featuring portraits of singers, preachers, mothers, families, and friends.

They also conduct art workshops and organize a youth art competition in the greater D.C. area. Their works have been displayed in several galleries and museums across the nation.
Also a musician, James is part of a band named The Color of Sound. Zsudayka is also a jewelry and accessory designer and works as a creative director and curator for the local gallery BloomBars. They’re currently working on opening a black gallery and auction house in D.C.
