Witness the Art of Hughie Lee-Smith at NJ’s Firehouse Gallery
Starting at the end of this month, you’ll have the rare opportunity to view watercolors, drawings and monotypes by the great American artist Hughie Lee-Smith at the ValleyArts Firehouse Gallery in Orange, New Jersey, The show, titled Witness, includes 28 works by the artist spanning 60 years–many of which have never before been exhibited publicly. All works come from the Estate of Lee-Smith, whose art reflected the challenges and complexities he found in urban society. Nigel Freeman, Swann Galleries’ African-American Fine Art Specialist, curated the show, which will be on view from January 29 to March 8. Visit www.hleesmith.com for more information.
