Pictured Artwork: Auntea by Corliss R. Owen 

Folk artist Corliss R. Owen is a visual storyteller. She creates compelling art that is steeped in tradition and conveys a sense of community. Her vivid, vibrantly colored paintings are reminiscent of heirloom quilts and beautifully capture the joys of everyday life. There is balance and harmony in Corliss’ work. A lyricism that brings to mind melodious jazz, foot stompin’ blues, old-time gospel and favorite ballads. Corliss R. Owen: Plain Folk is a solo exhibition that presents more than 20 of the artist’s paintings that work to broaden historical and cultural understandings.
