Raymond Saunders: On Freedom and Trust
11:00 AM
Sonoma Valley Museum of Art
Description:
This exhibition’s 20-25 stunning large mixed-media paintings by Raymond Saunders represent his vast career of works that often reuse many motifs and repurpose commercial and cultural signs to create multiple perspectives and meanings.

Now in his 80s, Saunders is known for his provocative pamphlet in 1967, “Black is a Color,” a manifesto questioning the stereotypical role of the black artists while playing on the scientific definition of wavelengths of the color spectrum. Saunders likes to reveal what we don’t see. he states, “in the process of painting, for the one thing that someone sees, there are innumerable things that they never see.”
