African-American Art: 20th Century Masterworks, IX


This is the seventh annual exhibition in an ongoing series which explores and celebrates the vast accomplishments of twentieth-century African-American artists. African-American Art: 20th Century Masterworks, VI presents rare museum caliber works, many recently discovered and never before exhibited. Historically, in the United States, African-American artists have encountered a society which relegated them to its periphery, but the tide has begun to change. In recent years, there has been a remarkable surge of exhibitions, publications, and articles which have dramatically increased exposure and with this exposure has come the possibility for long overdue recognition. Presenting more than forty historic works by more than thirty artists, this exhibition aspires to continue the trend toward increasing education, awareness, and much-deserved appreciation. Artists included in this exhibition: Charles Alston, Benny Andrews, William Artis, Romare Bearden, John Biggers, Eldzier Cortor, Ernest Crichlow, Beauford Delaney, Joseph Delaney, William H. Johnson, Lois Mailou Jones, Jacob Lawrence, Hughie Lee-Smith, Norman Lewis, Archibald J. Motley, Jr., Marion Perkins, Horace Pippin, Betye Saar, Augusta Savage, Charles Sebree, Henry Ossawa Tanner, Alma Thomas, Bob Thompson, Bill Traylor, James VanDerZee, Laura Wheeler Waring, Charles White, and Hale Woodruff.
