Art League exhibit has global roots

Both William Kwamena-Poh and Donna Ireton create artwork that's heavily influenced by native cultures. But that's where their work starts to differ.

Kwamena-Poh was born in Ghana and now lives in Savannah. His lifelike work reflects his African heritage, using a watercolor technique that allows him to paint in more detail than what's usually possible in the medium. His work has appeared on several television programs, including "The Cosby Show."

Ireton's medium is basketmaking. Her technique draws from American Indian cultures, weaving together long-leaf pine needles to create baskets, similar to what the Seminole tribe created.

The two artists will show together from Tuesday through Nov. 6 at the Art League Gallery in Pineland Station. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. A reception with the artists will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday.
