Artist Indea VaheR created the Sunrise Mansion Gallery, Museum & Performing Arts venue as a vehicle to display her artwork and share the history of the people it represents. Indea’s paintings focus on two areas of African American history and culture, the Gullah Culture of the Sea Islands and the Black Creole culture of the Cane and Red River valleys.
Both of these highly recognized regions impact the style, technique, and subject matter that distinguish her pieces. While the Gullah culture of SC, & GA is unique in its pure preservation of culture through undisturbed African lineages, the Creole culture is a celebration of the blending of French, African, Spanish and Native American cultures. Paradoxically, Vaher is able to capture significant components of each culture within her creations.
