Indira Bailey in Black History Month show at Drake House

'Nani and Joe', by Indira Bailey.

Plainfield artist Indira Bailey will be featured in a Black History Month exhibit at the Drake House which opens Sunday (January 26) with a reception from 2 - 4 PM.

Indira has taught commercial illustration in the Essex County Vo-Tech Schools for over a decade. She has won Fulbright-Hayes Fellowships to South Africa (2004), Japan (2005) and Morocco (2011). In 2012, she was named Essex County Teacher of the Year and was one of four finalists for NJ Teacher of the Year. In 2013, Ms. Bailey was selected for New Jersey's first Teacher Advisory Pilot Program.

Ms. Bailey's art depicts the daily lives of many of the people in the countries she has visited as a Fulbright-Hayes scholar.

The show will hang in the Drake House Gallery throughout the month of February and may be viewed during the museum's regular hours or by appointment.

The Drake House Museum at 602 West Front Street (at the foot of Plainfield Avenue) is open to the public Sunday afternoons from 2:00 - 4:00 PM, and at other times by appointment. For more information, call (908) 755-5831 or visit the website at
