About the Arts


Welcome to True Originals, an exhibition of work by artist Ainsley Burrows. Over the course of two days, Burrows will present six figurative paintings with a special portrait of George Franklin Grant, inventor of the first golf tee. Also on view will be two paintings exemplifying Burrows' signature abstract style.


True Originals was inspired by George F. Grant's invention, and is a celebration of several iconic Black figures who had a vision for the prosperity of their communities and led the way to better circumstances in golf and other areas. The portraits will include figures who did not exist, but are representative of those whose greatness was not recorded in history. These are the original dreamers and doers who's shoulders we stand on today.


True Originals will be on view July 23rd & 24th during the Original Tee Golf Classic events. It is curated by Laurielle Noel and powered by Vivian K. Tozaki, Esq.; with 10% of all proceeds from the sale of each piece going to support The Original Tee Golf Classic.
