‘Witness And Testimony’

Elizabeth Catlett and Jacob Lawrence are two important historic Black artists who are featured in the exhibition “Witness and Testimony.” The show, curated by Cathy Shannon of E&S Gallery (one of the oldest African American fine art galleries in the world), features artists at different points of their careers. Her goal was “to push back against negative narratives of Black people.” Catlett and Lawrence came to prominence in the 1930s-‘40s. Others in the exhibition are Leroy Campbell and Woodrow Nash from the Civil Rights era, and contemporary artists Sherry Shine and Kevin A. Williams.
