Kalilah Sabree’s ‘Breaking Point’ is from a recent nine-painting series titled ‘Destruction of a Culture’ focused on influences that affect the Muslim world and how it is perceived.

Artworks Trenton is presenting regionally known artist Kalilah Sabree’s “Journey to Now – A Twenty Year Retrospective” from February 2 through March 3.

The exhibition features the artist’s exploration of spiritual transformation and world issues and features variety of current large scale, mixed-media paintings and drawings as well as several series with a contemporary Islamic flavor.

In a statement, Sabree says she “filters the world through the eyes of an African-American Muslim woman and educator,” the latter reflecting her status as former Lawrence High School teacher.

Sabree maintains a private studio at Artworks Trenton, has a master of fine art in painting from The University of The Arts, and received her B.A, from The College of New Jersey. Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout the Tri-State area.

Artworks Trenton, 19 Everett Alley, Trenton, Thursday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. (masks and social distancing required), free. 609-394-9436 or www.artworkstrenton.org.
