Check gallery website for hours and additional info

Dialogues in Drawing is inspired by the struggles and victories of women artists living and working through social turbulence, contested identity politics, and dramatic political change. The exhibition is conceived of as a dynamic and relational dialogue among seventeen contemporary women artists who are actively engaged in processes of describing and re-describing the world through drawing, both as a medium in and of itself and as an essential part of other multi-media art practices.

The exhibition features artists Damali Abrams, ruby onyinyechi amanze, Amy Cutler, Donna Dennis, Torkwase Dyson, Anna Sigmond Gudmundsdottir, Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle, Rosemary Mayer (1943-2014), Alison Saar, Toyin Ojih Odutola, Ebony G. Patterson, Adrian Piper, Simone Shubuck, Shinique Smith, Saya Woolfalk, and Sam Vernon. The opening reception for the artists will be held on Thursday, March 16, 2017 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm with a conversation with the artists at 6:30 pm. Dialogues in Drawing is on view from March 16 – May 23, 2017.
