The Scarab Club is proud to host a solo exhibition of paintings and drawings by noted Detroit artist Carole Morisseau.
Morisseau is a multidisciplinary artist, trained in the visual and performance arts, as well as an educator and entrepreneur. As a visual artist, Morisseau is accomplished in the genre of nouveau réalism (new realist) styles of art. Her signature is comprised of strong images, bold colors, and thought-provoking themes, which she often incorporates into series to help fully explore her newest concepts. She has exhibited nationally at the New York and Atlanta Black Fine Art Shows, Philadelphia International Art Exposition, and the Congressional Black Caucus Session, in Washington, DC. A select roster of local exhibitions includes the National Conference of Artists, Detroit Scarab Club, Grosse Pointe Art Center, Dell Pryor and Arts Extended Galleries. Her work can be found in private and public collections.
Morisseau believes that “art is the cornerstone that helps children learn.” To that end she has taught art and dance at the Nataki Talibah Schoolhouse of Detroit and the Detroit Public Schools. She served as a professor of dance at Marygrove College, Wayne State University, and Wayne County Community College. She also founded and directed the Detroit Dance Company for 36 years. Morisseau attained her teacher certification in art education from Central State University, Wilberforce, Ohio, and continued her studies at several institutions including the Charles McGee School of Art, College for creative Studies, as well as the Columbia College of Art, Chicago and School of the Art Institute in Chicago. She is currently enrolled at Wayne State University in the Educational Leadership Masters Degree Program.
