This event has ended.

Cardboard, Showcard Color, an unerring sense of geometry, proportion, and wit make Bill Traylor a timeless master. Luise Ross Gallery presents a rarely seen body of the artist’s work. The gallery has been a champion of this self-taught artist’s work since its inception in 1983. It was at this time Traylor came to prominence in the noteworthy Black Folk Art in America exhibition at The Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. In general, the artist focused on three basic categories: the figure, animals, and common objects. Using a pencil, a straight edge and poster paint, this self-taught master conveys an unparalleled sophistication of expression. His work has been included in major exhibitions not only in the United States but in Europe and the Far East as well.
