Another decent description which hints at the power that men of good will have when they tell their story honestly . . .
"The six paintings in the Nerman’s Kansas Focus Gallery also deal with racism, and each has a commentary. All the works are single images of African-American men that can be read as self-portraits of the artist, as well as images of men like him."
Take a look:
There are only seven paintings in Harold Smith's exhibit "Can You See Me?" but each is so vibrant, mighty, and disturbing that the show feels as expansive as a major museum installation. Smith labors in the trickiest of arenas: he juggles painting, protest and poetry in every artwork. The result?
