Seattle native Xenobia Bailey has a fantastic new solo exhibition of her work at the Northwest African American Museum. Bailey’s background in industrial design lends to her artwork. The exhibit is called The Aesthetics of Funk.

On her website, Xenobia says of her art: “This exhibit is a works-in-progress. My artistic mission is to research, develop and organize the fragmented and disassemble African American’s domestic textile cultural history, into my interpretation of the evolution of crochet and the visual aesthetic of Funk.”

You are invited to hear Xenobia Bailey discuss her artwork and fiber techniques, as well as her spiritual journey in the art process on Wednesday, November 2 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm at NAAM. To RSVP, please email: The event is free and open to the public.

The Asthetics of Funk will be exhibited at the Northwest African American Museum through May 6, 2012. For more information, head to their website at

Northwest African American Museum is located at 2300 South Massachusetts Street; Seattle, WA 98144.
