Karen Smith, Oil on Ampersand gessobord, 5 x 7"
Windows rattled in frames. Crumbs danced on the floor. The cat hid.
Out on the avenue the Fairmount Art Fest was happening. Across the street a makeshift tent threw thin shade on a gathering of hot musicians. I caught a front row seat for drummer Karen Smith. On a single djembe drum, Karen beat the whole steaming avenue into a dance party.
Karen Smith leads two musical groups: Weez The Peeple and Sistahs Laying Down Hands With Love.
