Gray Matters
Two of our artists, Michelle Grabner and Mickalene Thomas, are included in an exhibition at the Wexner Center for the Arts at Ohio University. This exhibition, Gray Matters, features 37 contemporary women artists that have explored the practice of grisaille – working in shades of gray.

On view through July 30th, Gray Matters is part of a full calendar year of exhibition programming at the Wexner Center in which every artist featured in their galleries is a woman.

On the occasion of the opening for this exhibition, Melissa Starkner from the Wexner Center interviewed Michelle Grabner along with Carmen Winant, another artist included in the show.
