Looking at Black Portraiture
September 14 - December 3
“Looking at Black Portraiture” is a tightly focused, informal exhibition organized around three major themes: representations of Black Americans by Black artists, the artistic process itself, and finally, how the genre of portraiture and dissemination of portrait images has changed over time. On display are preparatory drawings, maquettes (small preliminary models), and finished portraits by a select group of intergenerational black artists, John Wilson (1922-2015,) Richard Blake (1943-), and William Kennedy (1987-).
