Andre Guichard, artist, curator, and co-owner of Gallery Guichard Fine Art Gallery in Chicago, got his first exposure to art through the eyes of his father who painted throughout his childhood. His cousin, the late great outsider artist, William Dawson, also inspired Andre’s artistic influence. Guichard has been painting professionally for 20 years His works can be found in over 1,000 corporate and private collections nationally and internationally.
Guichard is well known internationally. Last year, he was one of the featured artists at the San Alejandro University and the Blue Havana Circle gallery in Havana, Cuba, a bridge of fine art between Havana, Cuba and America. For the third consecutive year, he is the national curator and spokesperson for Russell Simmons and Bombay Sapphire’s Artisan Series. Guichard was responsible for the coordination and judging of the 2,600 artists submissions nationally with approximately 400 Chicago artists submissions.
His work also has been commercially recognized. In 2010, six of his original paintings were featured on canvas totes as part of Walgreen’s Community Corner program distributed in 7,000 Walgreen’s stores nationwide. He has a permanent installation in the Bronzeville Jazz McDonald’s (the 25,000th McDonald restaurant), featuring six images from his Jazz Series in Chicago.

The African Diaspora is the spreading out of the people who descended from Africa as a result of movement around the world due to slavery or, their own volition, through migration, mainly to the Amercias, Europe and the Middle East. Historically, as far back as the beginning of mankind in Africa, art has been a piece of the fabric woven into our culture.

Andre is a renowned fine artist of 21 years, gallery director and the national curator for the Bacardi USA, Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series while his wife Frances, operates as administrator and business manager.

DALLAS – Nov. 8, 2012 –Denny’s has donated $25,000 to the Tom Joyner Foundation to help students pursuing food science and hospitality management degrees at several Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) achieve their educational goals.
“I’m really thrilled that Denny’s has gone beyond just stepping up to the plate to help these students fulfill their dreams of completing a college education – and majoring in a subject they love,” said Tom Joyner, chairman of the 14-year-old Foundation and host of the nationally syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show aired in more than 100 markets reaching 8 million listeners. “This is a great opportunity for these students and for my Foundation that’s been grounded in my love for black colleges.”
John Miller, president and chief executive officer of Denny’s, said, “Denny’s has been a longtime supporter of the Tom Joyner Foundation and an advocate for African American students working toward their educational goals. We are proud to provide $25,000 to these ambitious students who are the future leaders of our industry.”
Of the donation, $10,000 will be divided equally amongst four students majoring in food science and hospitality management at the current HBCU they are attending. The winners are:
- Kelsey Brumfield of Newport News, Va., a junior majoring in recreation and tourism at Hampton University, Hampton, Va.
- Chase Davis of Conyers, Ga., a junior majoring in food and nutrition management at South Carolina State University, Orangeburg, S.C.
- Britteny Junious of Charlotte, N.C., a junior majoring in food science at North Carolina A&T University, Greensboro, N.C.
- Lillian Mosley of Macon, Ga., a junior majoring in food and nutrition at Fort Valley State University, Fort Valley, Ga.
Each of the students already has big plans after graduation. Davis of South Carolina State says, “While I am attending culinary school, my plan is to develop a curriculum and run a series of Youth Culinary Cooking Camps.” Mosley of Fort Valley State, a single mom of two daughters who has been a licensed cosmetologist, wants to stop the cycle of hypertension, diabetes and heart disease in her family and the African American community. “I plan to teach community members how to eat healthier and to live more productive lives,” she says.
Junious of North Carolina A&T State says she is planning to head to graduate school to become a food chemist. “I want to study the microbiology of food and explore ways to make food healthier with fewer preservatives and additives, which I believe may be harmful to some people,” she says. Brumfield of Hampton says after graduate school she is planning to become a director of youth development programs.
The additional $15,000 will be used to provide scholarships to selected students at Florida Memorial University (FMU).
“We are very pleased to learn of Denny’s renewed commitment to students at HBCUs across the nation,’’ said FMU President Henry Lewis III. “We are especially pleased that Denny’s gift will provide assistance to our single-parent students and those who are dually enrolled in the hospitality management program. Many thanks to Denny’s.”
Tyrone Aaron, a junior at Livingstone College in Salisbury, N.C. is a computer information systems major from Atlanta, Ga, who has been named this week’s Hercules Scholar by the Tom Joyner Foundation.
This honor student has a 4.0 GPA and serves as the Junior Class President, is a member of the Media Group, Common Cause, Stars Alliance, and he has mentored over 40 youth in the Salisbury community.
Aaron lives by the motto, “What don’t kill you will make you stronger”.
Livingstone College and Hood Theological Seminary were originally founded as Zion Wesley Institute by a group of A.M.E. Zion ministers for the purpose of training ministers in the Cabarrus County town of Concord, North Carolina in 1879.
After three brief sessions, directed by principals Bishop C. R. Harris and Professor A.S. Richardson, the Institute ultimately closed in Concord. In 1881, Dr. Joseph Charles Price and Bishop J. W. Hood changed their roles as delegates to the Ecumenical Conference and became fund-raisers with the mission to re-establish Zion Wesley Institute.
The Rowan County town of Salisbury, just 20 miles northeast of Concord, gave the Trustees a generous donation of $1,000 and an invitation to relocate the school in Salisbury. They accepted both gifts, and the College re-opened in Salisbury in 1882 with Dr. Price as President. The new site was J. M. Gray’s farm called Delta Grove, which consisted of one building and 40 acres of land.
