A Curator Collects: Highlights from the collection of H. Elaine Jackson

Thursday, March 1, 2018

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 27, 2018, 5 - 8 pm.

Local collector and independent curator H. Elaine Jackson has, over a period of nearly four decades, acquired and exhibited work by prominent mid-20th-century artists of color drawn from the continental U.S., as well as practitioners from the Caribbean basin and Africa, with a deliberate focus on the graphic mediums. 
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.
