Dialogues in Drawing
Jenkins Johnson Gallery is pleased to present Dialogues in Drawing, a group show of contemporary women artists, in honor of Women’s History Month, curated by Natasha Becker. The exhibition features Damali Abrams, ruby onyinyechi amanze, Amy Cutler, Donna Dennis, Torkwase Dyson, Anna Gudmundsdottir, Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle, Rosemary Mayer, Toyin Ojih Odutola, Ebony G. Patterson, Adrian Piper, Tracey Rose, Alison Saar, Simone Shubuck, Shinique Smith, Samantha Vernon, and Saya Woolfalk. These artists represent diverse backgrounds and generations, and each makes her art in a different way. What connects them is the centrality of drawing to their creative practices and as a means of exploring aesthetic, social, cultural, and political concerns.
