The Norwalk Art Space is delighted to open its newest exhibition on Thursday, July 22, 2021, “A Dialogue in Styles, Jahmane and Adger Cowans.” — an announcement from The Norwalk Art Space
This exhibit encompasses multiple decades of evolutionary work from two premier Connecticut artists, Adger Cowans and The Norwalk Art Space’s Korry Fellow Jahmane. Deeply rooted in social commentary, abstraction, bold experimentation, and the ability to explore concepts beyond traditional “Black Art,” this exhibition presents an intimate view into the creative worlds of two accomplished artists. Although generationally separated, Jahmane’s and Cowan’s work share common threads that complement each other as if created on simultaneous timelines. The range of subject matter, medium, and technique demonstrate each artist’s ability to translate diverse concepts into newfound works of art ranging from graffiti, fashion, graphic design, cultural iconography, and murals in Jahmane’s case and photography, textiles, and painting for Adger.
