Friday, June 7, 2019 | 7 – 9PM | LaGrange Art Museum

Abstraction by African American Women Artists in the Cochran Collection. Wes and Missy Cochran began building their impressive collection of abstract works at a time when it was unusual to collect non-figurative art by African American artists. The works in the exhibition attest to the remarkable depth of talent of African American women artists who worked in the field of abstraction despite receiving little critical or popular attention, a situation that has only recently begun to change.
