Jerald Melberg Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of work in a wide variety of media by Romare Bearden (1911-1988). Although Bearden is best-known for his collages, he was constantly experimenting throughout his career, using various techniques to achieve his artistic goals. Ways of Working, Experiments & Techniques, highlights many of his most frequently used mediums with the goal of providing education about each of his processes. From screenprints and etchings to photo projections and monotypes, this exhibition includes examples of Bearden's diverse methods of creating editioned and unique works. Many artists never branch out beyond one or two ways of working for fear of clouding their message, but Bearden's voice was so singular that it could transcend media.
