African American Art from the Permanent Collection
Until May 4, 2014
This small installation in the Works on Paper gallery features drawings, prints, photographs, and paintings by African American artists who live in New Mexico, or have been inspired by the region. The diverse assembly include rarely exhibited treasures from the collection such as prints by Albuquerque based Rein Whit-Pritchett a monumental drawing by Santa Fe based Ron Adams, and a memory painting by Albuquerque artist Reginald Gammon. The installation will also feature recent acquisitions including a spectacular, minimal, hard-edged abstraction by Washington, D.C. based painter and conservator Felrath Hines, and images from the series Blacks in the West by Los Angeles based photographer Tony Gleaton.
