Carroll Sockwell's Grey Compositions

Buchanan Partners Art Gallery exhibitions are on full display, so drop by and take in works by talented local artists.

View Carroll Sockwell’s exhibition Grey Compositions (October 12 through November 14), a suite of six large-scale drawings that feature a cacophony of black charcoal marks dancing over smoke-like expanses of grey and brown. Viewed together, the abstract works’ map-like graphic notations suggest an epic visual poem or musical score. Sockwell (1943-1992) was a prominent figure in the Washington, D.C. art scene in the 1970s. Often using the simplest of tools—pencil, charcoal, and pastel, Sockwell was an internationally acknowledged master of non-representational abstraction and belongs to the last generation of American Abstract Expressionists.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and two hours before each performance. Visit our website for more information about upcoming exhibitions.
