Personal to Political: Celebrating the African American Artists of Paulson Fontaine Press

About

This exciting exhibition features works by 14 African American artists who have helped to shape the contemporary art conversation in the Bay Area and beyond. The show covers a wide range of prints, paintings, quilts, and sculptures, and includes an array of abstract and formal imagery. 

Narratives that speak to personal experiences and political perspectives are woven throughout. At the heart of this show is a Berkeley based fine art print studio—Paulson Fontaine Press—who over the past two decades has developed an unparalleled roster of internationally celebrated artists - artists like Martin Puryear , Kerry James Marshall,  and the Gee’s Bend Quilters – who characterize the fresh perspectives that are today’s avant-garde.

FWMoA is closed Mondays.
