Vibrant Vision: African Diaspora and African American Artists

Vibrant Vision: African Diaspora and African American Artists, works from the Jonathan Green and Richard Weedman Collection, runs September 14, 2018 – January 12, 2019

People throughout the south are familiar with Jonathan Green’s paintings. He is beloved by many for his vibrant depictions of Gullah life and culture in the South Carolina Lowcountry. Few, however, are familiar with the incredible collection of artwork assembled by Jonathan and his partner and studio manager, Richard Weedman, over the past 38 years. Their international art collection, “Vibrant Vision,” includes paintings, sculptures, and prints from outstanding WPA-era African Diaspora and African American artists. The collection reflects themes of work, love, belonging and spirituality. With outstanding African American artists such as Clementine Hunter, Elizabeth Catlett, Hughie Lee-Smith, Hale Woodruff, Romare Howard Bearden and more, these works of art have a particular focus on pieces created from the late 1930’s and 40s, the period of the Federal Art Project of the Works Progress Administration, to the present, from the Caribbean and the United States.

The opening event will begin with a 7–9 p.m. reception at the Crealdé’s main campus, including a brief gallery talk by the curators, and will continue with at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center from 8–10 p.m. with a reception featuring live music and African dance. Friday, September 14.
