"It's an exciting, soulful exhibit filled with not only works which envisage our slave past, but abstracts and photos which visualize the present and promise of a post racial future. I urge everyone to come out and see it," she said.
Andrews, who lives in Malibu and on the East End, is an award-winning writer, photographer, sculptor and abstract expressionist, best known for scripting the Warner Bros. film "Why Do Fools Fall In Love."
