Amos Ferguson (the Bahamas, 1920 – 2009) was a house painter by profession who began painting when he was a boy. He received a vision from God in a dream; God told him to paint the beauty of His world, to celebrate the Bible and nature, and to show off his native Bahamas. Amos followed God’s commands and painted prolifically for many years. Amos Ferguson claimed to, “Paint by Faith, Not by Sight.”

Mary Frances Whitfield (b. 1947, Alabama) focuses her rich paintings on the historical and modern plight of African-Americans, and the cruelty and injustice they have experienced. The powerful works contain little detail; the figures have no facial features. Instead, the drama of their gestures or body language conveys the feeling of the painting.
