Upfor Gallery

The Soul of Black Art: A Collector’s View opens on September 1, 2016 and includes paintings, prints, photographs and video art by fourteen modern through contemporary artists. The show runs through October 15, 2016. The gallery is open during the First Thursday art walks on September 1 and October 6 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. The exhibition and events are free to attend and open to the public.

Collector John Goodwin guest curates Upfor’s third anniversary exhibition, including work from his and Michael-Jay Robinson’s collection in conversation with work selected for the occasion. Briefly surveying changes in depiction of black culture in America over the last 100 years, the exhibition begins with abstract expressionist collage depicting economic strife in Goodwin’s home state of North Carolina, and extends to a young physician/photographer of Black/Korean descent who captures powerful and poignant images of today’s black culture.

The exhibition includes work by Romare Bearden, Marian Carrasquero, Ralph Chessé, Kris Graves, Zig Jackson, Zun Lee, Glenn Ligon, Marion Post-Wolcott, Michael-Jay Robinson, Devan Shimoyama, Gary Simmons, Arvie Smith, Andy Warhol and Damon Winter. Read artist bios here.
