Ancient and Imagined Places: Abstractions by Vincencia Blount
September 23, 2023 - December 10, 2023
This fall, experience the bold, colorful, and dynamic abstract paintings of artist Vincencia Blount. This exhibition features eight of her large-scale works, which are filled with broad brushstrokes, bleeds and splashes, overlapping textures, and a simply brilliant use of color.
Known as Tatty to her friends, Blount was born in Miami, Florida, in 1924. She was bold and prolific, exhibiting in the South and New York at a time when art by women was often not considered worthy of wall space. She was among the group of nationally respected artists represented by Judith Alexander, one of the vibrant founders of Atlanta’s contemporary and folk art scenes. Blount’s works are in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia in Atlanta and the Morris Museum of Art. She lived and worked in Atlanta most of her life, making art well into her eighties, before she passed away in 2012.
