Local collector and independent curator H.

A Curator Collects: Highlights from the collection of H. Elaine Jackson
Tuesday, January 23, 2018
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 20, 2018, 5 - 8 pm.
The exhibition at the Brentwood Arts Exchange in February 2018 will feature selected works representative of four decades of collecting. The corpus of the exhibit focuses on four prominent mid-20th century NYC based practitioners -- Romare Bearden, Herbert Gentry, Vincent Smith and Norma Morgan but also brings together a cross-section of work spanning several generations of female artists offering a referential point-of-view touching on the multiple roles imposed on and displayed by women -- mother, goddess, object, muse.
Ages: All ages are welcome.
