Contemporary artist Robert Freeman has exhibited in numerous museums and galleries in the Boston area over the last 30 years. His paintings capture the Black middle class in various situations, from black tie events to Mardi Gras celebrations. Available in the live session of the upcoming 2020 MassArt Auction is one of Freeman’s paintings, titled Two Red Dresses. The 2018 work shows two women dancing in cocktail dresses. Their suited partners have matching corsages.
A polyurethane wall sculpture from Bill Thompson is among the highlighted items. The piece is colored in a deep shade of magenta that varies in shade across the sculpture’s curves. Thompson’s work has been shown in Santa Fe, Munich, and Boston. An example of Jane Maxwell’s mixed media pieces will also come to auction. The available lot shows four female silhouettes standing with their hands on their hips; the figures are overlaid with the phrase “nevertheless, she persisted.”
This sale, offered by the Massachusetts College of Art and Design Foundation to benefit students of the arts, will present 31 lots from contemporary artists.
