!@tallartgirl, @JuneCarol_E, et al. in Group Exhibition @ CAAM | reception: Saturday, 8/15, 12-2pm

Hard Edged

Hard Edged presents paintings, sculptures, collages, photographs, videos, and installations with very different approaches—from perceptual to conceptual, from formal to boundary-crossing. Yet, the works in this exhibition share a unity of form, a clear sense of composition, bold shapes and, often, intense contrast or solid color choices.

The show draws widely from local sources, including CAAM’s permanent collection, private collectors, galleries, and the artists themselves, and includes works by Chelle Barbour, Sharon Louise Barnes, April Bey, Joseph Beckles, Ronda Brown, Mark Broyard, Lavialle Campbell, Elizabeth Carroll, Castillo, Edward Clark, Charles Dickson, June Edmonds, Melvin Edwards, Kathie Foley-Meyer, Bre Gipson, David Hammons, Hillary Jaynes, Daniel LaRue Johnson, Rashid Johnson, Samuel Levi Jones, Doyle Lane, Jacob Lawrence, Isabelle Lutterodt, Enoch Mack, Eric Mack, Senga Nengudi, Nzuji de Magalhaes, Kori Newkirk, Duane Paul, Doug Pearsall, Karl Petion, Greg Pitts, Noah Purifoy, Charla Puryear, Miles Regis, John T. Riddle Jr., Michelle Robinson, Charles Rosenberg, Lisa C Soto, Devin Troy Strother, Holly Tempo, Matthew Thomas, Richard Turner, Tim Washington, Lisa Diane Wedgeworth, and Brenna Youngblood.
