Opening Reception: Arabesque: The Art of Stephanie E. Pogue

David C. Driskell Center for the Visual Arts and Culture of African Americans and the African Diaspora Thursday, October 16, 2008 5:00 pm-7:00 pm

Curated by the Center’s Curator-in-Residence Dr. Adrienne Childs, the exhibition will examine Pogue’s artistry from the 1970’s to the 1990’s.  Pogue mastered the technique of color viscosity etching through which she created images with, multidimensional surfaces in vivid colors. Often highly decorative, her work reflects her interest in nature, spirituality and Eastern themes and motifs. Throughout her career as an artist she revisited the theme of the female body as universal and particular. Her work intersects with the Pattern and Decoration as well as the feminist art movements in American art of the 1970s and postmodernist sensibilities in the 1990s.
