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 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.
