Hodges work consists of large mixed-media pieces that incorporate screen printing, painting, spray painting, stenciling and collage. Images in the pieces include both portraits of Hodges favorite musicians and what inspires them -- black political figures, maps of Africa and the Masonic seal. I wanted to pay homage to these musicians that I listen to; without them I couldnt do what I do, Hodge says. The show runs today only and includes performances by Lisa Harris, Tamar Davis (who once performed with Prince) and local DJs Yppah, (On) Hiatus and Flash Gordon Parks.
