REGULAR EXHIBIT HOURS: Wed - Sun, 9am - 4pm, through Aug 6
This exhibit encompasses multiple decades of evolutionary work from two premier Connecticut artists, Adger Cowans and The Norwalk Art Space's Korry Fellow Jahmane. Deeply rooted in social commentary, abstraction, bold experimentation, and the ability to explore concepts beyond traditional "Black Art," this exhibition presents an intimate view into the creative worlds of two accomplished artists. Although generationally separated, Jahmane's and Cowan's work share common threads that complement each other as if created on simultaneous timelines. The range of subject matter, medium, and technique demonstrate each artist's ability to translate diverse concepts into newfound works of art ranging from graffiti, fashion, graphic design, cultural iconography, and murals in Jahmane's case and photography, textiles, and painting for Adger. Each has their unique voice for the era in which they come from, but both have an endless sense of exploration that pushes boundaries in our civic discourse but also as curious artistic minds.
