Exhibit Reception: A Community of Artists
Join us for the opening reception for our new changing exhibition A Community of Artists: African American Works on Paper from the Cochran Collection, which showcases fifty noted 20th century American artists. Collected and curated by Wes and Missy Cochran, the Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking chose a selection from the larger collection that not only tells the story of 20th century art in America but highlights the contributions of Georgia’s artists to this larger story. The show also illuminates the roles of female artists and Black master printers in creating a cross-generational commentary on artistic freedom, activism, and community. Whether intentionally or coincidentally, the lives and voices of the featured artists intersect to create a lively dialogue that remains relevant to today’s audiences. The exhibition is on view from August 5 - December 2, 2022.
An in-person artist talk is scheduled for the evening of the opening reception from 7:00pm - 8:00pm featuring four artists whose work is in the show, Tina Dunkley, Jim Alexander, Kevin Cole, and Radcliffe Bailey. In addition to the opening reception there will be several virtual lectures (Sept 6, Sept 20, & Nov 1, 7p EST) and an in-person workshop (Nov 15, 7pm EST) to round out the programming. The exhibition and virtual lectures are free and open to the public.
Located at 500 Tenth St. NW, Atlanta, GA 30332, the Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking is open Monday – Friday, 9-5p.
