Hooks-Epstein Galleries presents Kermit Oliver opening reception
Kermit Oliver’s paintings and drawings have earned him worldwide recognition as one of the finest contemporary American artists of our time. Oliver’s work is included in the inaugural exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC, which opened to the public in September.
Oliver, a student of Greek and Roman mythology and of the Old and New Testaments, derives extensive symbolism from these texts, which he presents in his work in a contemporary and highly personal way. His paintings show the honesty and integrity of a talented and dedicated artist. His works have a sense of spirit and mystery that reflect his unique and personal vision.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 7, 2017.
