Personal to Political: Celebrating the African American Artists of Paulson Fontaine Press

April 15 - June 24

There is no singular way to address the conversation of race and representation in contemporary art. The artists of Personal to Political capture the personal narratives and political battles of African American artists across the country, reflecting a collective experience expressed in uniquely individual ways. In addition to numerous prints from Paulson Fontaine Press, this show includes paintings, sculptures, and quilts that include both narrative and abstract imagery. Paulson Fontaine Press has a long tradition of supporting both established and under-represented artists who, in their studio practice, work in a broad reach of media and conceptual approaches. 

This exhibition features work by Kerry James Marshall, David Huffman, the Gee’s Bend Quilters, Radcliffe Bailey, and Lonnie Holley.
