      Priscilla Phifer is a self-taught abstract expressionist artist, with the aid of several classes taken at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center and The Community House, both in Birmingham, MI, from 2014 to 2016. Since then, Priscilla has had three solo shows, her first of which was an unexpected sellout in 2015! It was then that she considered herself a professional artist. Her hobby soon became an “accidental” business. The Coronavirus prevented her from having her fourth solo in April 2020.

      Group exhibits: Dell Pryor Gallery, Detroit; famed songwriter Allee Willis’ exhibit in Los Angeles; Blossoming Artists Gallery, Detroit; N’Namdi Center for Contemporary Art, Detroit; NCA Michigan Gallery, Detroit; Charles Wright Museum of African American History; Detroit Public Library; Carr Center, Detroit; the NCA Invitational Exhibition at Rosenthal Gallery-Fayetteville State University and the Ellington White Contemporary Gallery, both in North Carolina; the Costick Center in Farmington Hills, Detroit Artists Market, Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center and other exhibits. Priscilla participated in her first international exhibit in Windsor, Ontario, Canada’s Artists of Colour “llumination” Exhibit, May 2019. She is often sought to donate her art to non-profits for their auction fundraisers.

      Priscilla’s art was juried into the City of Farmington Hills’ two-year public art program from Jan 2017-19. Her art is in Mack Alive’s Ambassador Permanent art collection in Detroit, the first piece of art purchased for this collection. Her work can also be found in such places as the N’Namdi Center for Contemporary Art in Detroit, the Franklin Grill Restaurant (Franklin, MI), and in many private collections from the West Coast to East Coast.

      Priscilla has affiliated with the National Conference of Artists, the Pierians Detroit art group, Detroit Fine Arts Breakfast Club, Farmington Art Foundation, and has memberships in the Detroit Artist Market, Detroit Institute of Art and the Charles Wright Museum. Additionally, she has been a guest on Morning Toast Radio Show and the Brenda Perryman Show; has served on panels and forums, and has been interviewed by media outlets such as Rollingout.com and Reflctmedia.com. Phifer uses her community involvement to bring opportunities to other artists. She played an integral role in establishing the Torch of Wisdom Foundation/Detroit Fine Arts Breakfast Club’s first-ever art auction fundraiser in Sept 2018, which has become an annual event.

      A graduate of Wayne State University in Detroit, MI, Priscilla’s friends at Eastern Michigan University, where she also attended, remind her that she has always been an artist, creating projects for various groups and individuals. Five years into her art journey, Priscilla has created an art book which is soon to be published.
