Statement on artists: This exhibit presents to Western New York a significant group of African American artists. Among them are two MacArthur Prize winners, regional and national grant recipients and a poet laureate. The works on paper illustrate the range and depth of artistic concerns for color, compositon, form and line. This is an extraordinary opportunity for Western New York to engage with the rich and deeply complex works of these artists.
