Celebrate the World of Black Art - Late Summer 2012
I’m happy to report that most of our renovation projects around the gallery are almost complete.
v This year has flown by as we have made so many new friends. We want to thank everyone that visited and especially the folks that traveled hours to Just Lookin’ to see (and hold!) the E.M. Bannister landscape before it found a happy new home. We also want to welcome our newest internet clients from places as far-flung as Iowa, Texas, California and Florida. Glad you found us!
v Evita Tezeno’s woodcuts are getting a warm reception. I will have them up in New Arrivals soon.
v New art by Eli Kince, Joyce Owens, Danny Broadway, Buchi Upjohn, Robin Holder and others will begin arriving in the next few weeks as we start our annual FALL FOR ART.
v Jamaal Sheats is busy working on his first public art commission - eight aluminum repoussé panels for Music City Center in Nashville. He is going to demonstrate the art of repoussé over his two day reception (see upcoming below) and a lucky attendee will win the piece. Join us and don’t forget to enter the drawing!
v Wesley Clark’s stained wood assemblage “My Big Black America” (below) created quite a stir at Hillyer Art Space recently.
v Michigan State University recently acquired two quilts “Courageous” and “The Bus Ride That Paved The Way”
v Don’t miss Curtis Woody’s show “A Struggle for Dignity” at the Prince George’s African American Museum
v We just acquired a few more pieces for our ’Out of the Vault’ selections including the John Biggers lithograph and a wonderful sculpture by Ed Dwight shown below.
