Presented by the San Diego African American Museum of Fine Art (SDAAMFA) at the SDSU Downtown Gallery, the exhibition features the work of American artist, Jonathan Green alongside other works drawn from the artist’s private collection with his life partner Richard Weedman. The impressive collection is comprised of paintings, sculptures, and works on paper by African American, Caribbean, Latin American, and American artists. The exhibition will reflect on the cultural diversity and interests of these artists as contributors to American art. Green’s works, noted for the masterful use of color and exquisite portrayal of the human figure, evoke the semitropical atmosphere and gentle daily rhythms of his agrarian home.
