When Alive recently caught up with Don "DonCee" Coulter, the local fabric artist was in the midst of a joint exhibition with the late Aminah Robinson at Hammond Harkins Galleries, part of GCAC's Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson Fellowship, of which Coulter was the first ever recipient. 

"It's overwhelming. You definitely feel honored, especially when I walk in and I'm seeing all this Aminah Robinson work, and then there's your piece right there. You kind of feel like you've arrived,” Coulter said at the time.

Last week, WOSU's Broad & High released a video that goes behind the scenes with Coulter as he talks about his artistic process, which involves painstakingly cutting pieces of fabric with a knife and using glue to layer them until the resulting image could pass for an intricate painting. Check out the video below, and revisit Alive's 2019 cover story on Coulter.
