DAWN WILLIAMS BOYD
Dawn Williams Boyd’s artwork reflects her interests in American history as it affects and is affected by its African American citizens, women’s identity and politics. After more than 30 years successfully painting in oils and acrylic paints, in 2002 this prolific artist began to 'paint' with fabric instead of on it. In addition to her ‘cloth paintings’ Ms. Boyd continues to work in other mediums specifically pen and ink on paper and acrylic paints on various surfaces.
Williams Boyd’s work has been exhibited in numerous solo exhibitions. Her exhibition Scraps From My Mother’s Floor was at the Richardson Family Art Gallery at Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC in March of this year. In June 2018, as part of the second annual National African American Quilt Convention, her exhibition Coming Home: Discussions of a Movement was featured at The Brown vs. The Board of Education Museum at Topeka, KS. Dawn had two solo exhibitions in 2017: Cloth Paintings by Dawn at Wonder Fair Gallery in Lawrence, KS and Coming Home at Southwest Art Center in Atlanta.
Dawn has participated in numerous national and international group exhibitions. Most recently:
