Grace Williams


Grace Williams, born in Jamaica but was raised in Harlem, New York, is known for her glass and mosaic works of art.  In her Harlem Art Application from 1976, Williams states that she is the forerunner and founder of the new art medium and art gallery called Reflections. According to Williams, “I have chosen ‘Reflections’ deliberately because my work encompasses every part of me and my true expression. There are images, meditations and conclusions of my feelings and thoughts in each work.”
