Talk: Thursday, November 12 from 6pm to 7pm
Join Glen Echo Park Partnership Galleries for an evening discussion with Preston Sampson, a figurative expressionist painter whose work captures the essence of Black people throughout US history. He will discuss themes from his solo exhibition, Respite, on view in Glen Echo Park Partnership’s Stone Tower Gallery through November 15, 2020.
In the exhibition, he portrays Black Americans enjoying simple pleasures. During a time of civil unrest and the fight for Black lives, Sampson’s portraits create an environment for rest or relief.
