She captures personal stories and intimate moments centering Black liberation, immigrant justice, and women’s rights. An Afro-Caribbean artist who remains rooted in her community, St. Clair grounds her work in radical love, joy and the knowledge that a more just world is possible.

ROBERT SHETTERLY is a self-taught artist living on the coast of Maine. Until 9-11 he was primarily a surrealist painter and printmaker. However, deeply distressed about the propaganda leading up to the Iraq War in 2003, he began a series of portraits he calls Americans Who Tell the Truth. There are now approximately 260 of them. They travel to schools , colleges, museums, libraries and churches all over this country teaching the necessity of courageous citizenship to close the gap between our ideals and our actions.

He received his Ed.S (Education Specialist) degree from Liberty University.
