Work by Los Angeles artist Alison Saar, who explores racism, gender bias and spirituality in her printmaking and sculpture, goes on exhibit Friday, May 28, at the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville. “Mirror, Mirror: The Prints of Alison Saar from the Collections of Jordan Schnitzer and His Family Foundation” will include lithographs, etchings and woodblocks and sculpture. The title of the show is taken from a wood, copper, tin and bronze figure in the show, “Mirror, Mirror (Mulata Seeking Inner Negress).”
In addition to the Schnitzer Foundation, Saar’s work is in the collection of the Whitney Museum of American and the Studio Museum in Harlem. Her drawing “Crow’s in the Kitchen” is in the Arkansas Arts Center Foundation Collection. She’s the daughter of Betye Saar, the famed collagist and member of the Black Arts Movement.
The show runs through Oct. 4.
