David C. Driskell, Eve and the Apple, 1967, color woodcut, 17.5” x 10.5”.
Echoes is a retrospective of the artistic career of David C. Driskell, presented in collaboration with Aljira, a Center for Contemporary Art. Thirty-four paintings, collages, drawings, and prints trace the artist’s development from his student years at Howard University in the mid-1950s to the present day. The works reflect a range of subjects and issues, from civil rights concerns and ethnic identity to landscapes inspired by the Maine countryside where he summers. This exhibition is presented alongside Narratives of African American Art and Identity: The David C. Driskell Collection, at The Newark Museum.
