Where and When
Time: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location: Hicks Art Center Gallery
August 24 – October 8, 2016
Peter Williams, an African-American artist and an amputee, explores issues of race and identity in America, his own personal experiences, and a world of fantasy, fear and delight in his richly nuanced paintings. His lush, painterly storytelling reveals a deeply resonant social critique that is both humorous and deadly serious.
