This  exhibition proudly presents ROBERT COLESCOTT, an abstract artist who  allowed the viewer to focus on the movement of the paint itself, while  analyzing the work for its enigmatic narratives. RICHARD MAYHEW, a  painter of Native American and African American descent whose works have  revolutionized the depiction of the American landscape by capturing the  experience rather than the literal appearance of his subject. GREGORY  COATES, a High Modernism enthusiast whose passion for raw materials  conveys his inspiration from street art attitudes. RADCLIFFE BAILEY, who  creates lavish painterly homages to the African American experience in  the form of socially inflected, and somewhat elegiac sculptural wall  assemblages. SAM GILLIAM, America's foremost Color Field Painter and Lyrical Abstractionists,  whose painterly abstraction concerns itself with saturated color and a  highly improvisational and spontaneous technique. NEHA VEDPATHAK, an  Indian artist who depicts minimalist forms while experimenting with  techniques to reinvent herself, stating that she uses painting as a  means of expression and interaction to reach spirituality. DEBORAH  DANCY, an abstractionist who seeks to examine the tension between  reality and the imagined. PEREZ CELIS, internationally recognized for  his paintings, sculptures, murals and engravings. ED CLARK, an abstract  expressionist painter famous for his powerful brush stroke, large  canvases, and use of vibrant color. FRANK BOWLING, who executes oils  mainly in earthy pigments infused with miscellaneous extraneous  materials, evidenced distinctly social and political narratives. BERNARD  WILLIAMS, a Chicago native who incorporates signs and symbols which are  collected and arranged in order tospeak about the complexities of  history and human development and movement through the ages.
