Pyramid Atlantic Art Center “A Collaboration of Creativity: Print Work of David C. Driskell” – Through March 19 pyramidatlanticartcenter.org
Artist and professor Curlee Raven Holton has curated a series of 30 prints by the late David C. Driskell (1931-2020) in an exhibition titled “A Collaboration of Creativity: Print Work of David C. Driskell.” Driskell, a prominent artist and historian, is credited as being one of the most influential advocates and scholars in the field of African American art. His legacy lives on at his namesake institution at the University of Maryland College Park where a rigorously programmed gallery, a vast repository of artwork and an extensive archive offer both visitors and researchers an opportunity to deepen their knowledge and appreciation of African American art. For over 30 years, Holton has worked with renowned artists such as Faith Ringgold, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Chakaia Booker and Robert Beachum. In 2006, Holton founded his own print studio, Raven Editions. For his first project, Holton turned to friend and fellow artist David Driskell to create a series of prints. The first work in the series, “Woman in Interior” can be seen–and purchased–at Pyramid Atlantic. The curated collection of work includes colored serigraphs as well as black-and-white relief prints. 4318 Gallatin Street, Hyattsville MD, 20781. Hours: Wed-Thu: 10:00 am–8:00 pm. Fri-Sun: 10:00 am-6:00 pm.| Mon-Tue: Closed. 301-608-9101.
