Northminster Presbyterian Church is pleased to announce the Sunday, September 11th opening of Up From Down Home: The Journey North, works by Evanston Artist Jevoid Simmons in its Tower Gallery exhibition space. Following the 9:30 am Worship Service, Jevoid Simmons will present brief remarks, and share the story of his family through 17 paintings which tell the story of his family’s journey from rural Alabama in the early 1950’s as part of the mass exodus of Black folks out of the South seeking survival and better opportunities. The exhibition will then be open until 12:30 pm for viewing.

Simmons is a painter and woodcarver, working primarily in the folk/primitive style. Through his art and written narrative, he documents his family’s history through his paintings and his first book, Up From Down Home: The Journey North. He resides in Evanston, Illinois with his family and two Siberian huskies.

Up From Down Home: The Journey North, can be purchased on-line at www.upfromdownhome.com.
