February 1 - April 14: FREEHAND
Freehand: Drawings by Inez Nathaniel Walker
February 1 – April 14, 2019
Inez Nathaniel Walker (1907–1990) made her first drawings while she was serving a sentence for killing a man who had abused her. While in prison she began creating remarkable portraits of her fellow inmates whom she called “bad girls.” Her richly patterned works combine meticulous detail and playful simplicity, forming expressive depictions of her subjects’ personalities and physical attributes. Freehand gathers together works by Walker from the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center’s permanent collection, donated by Pat O’Brien Parsons ’51, along with a number of key loans from private and public collections to present the artist’s first one-person museum exhibition.
