All are welcome at a public reception celebrating the exhibit, "Arabesque- Differential Viscosity Color Prints by African American Artist Stephanie E. Pogue." Punch and cookies will be served. The exhibit is on display Feb. 1-Mar. 31, 2020. This exhibit is free and open to the public. Stephanie E. Pogue (1944-2002) was a painter, printmaker (specializing in differential viscosity printmaking), and professor. She attended Syracuse University for one year, then transferred to Howard University in D.C. where she finished her 3 remaining years of undergrad. She attended the School of Fine Arts and majored in painting. Ms. Pogue then attended Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, where she earned her Masters of Fine Arts Degree in printmaking. Following graduation, she joined the Faculty at Fisk University, Nashville, Tennessee, under the tutelage of David C. Driskell, who had been one of her professors during her time at Howard. She subsequently followed Dr. Driskell to the University of Maryland, where she joined the Art Department faculty, eventually taking her turn as Chairman of the Department. "My content embraces quiet moments, the beauty to be found in small as well as large things, the excitement of a stormy sea: in short, interpretations of that which has touched me." -Stephanie E. Pogue, 1990 We are so excited to share work from Ms. Pogue's artistic career in the Hubbard Gallery during Black History Month and also Women's History Month. She is our featured artist for the 4th Annual Women's Expo, which takes place March 14, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Latinx self-proclaimed "Artivist" Beatriz Vasquez will also be featured alongside Pogue in March and at The Expo. Beatriz specializes in traditional "papel picado" or cut paper. "Pogue's career intersected with some of the most important movements in the history of 20th century American Art. The Black Arts Movement, the Feminist Movement, and Post-Modernism are a few of the artistic currents that framed Pogue's career and that are at times embodied in her work." -Dr. Adrienne L. Childs. Thank you to our generous sponsors: Peggy & Wayne Williams, 51 West event center, and the Friends of the Frankfort Library. Also thank you to Robert Pogue and Dr. and Mrs. William Pogue, for making this exhibit possible. Images are used with permission by the David C.
