Art Hazelwood and Ronnie Goodman: Speaking to the Issues
Georgia Museum of Art

JUNE 13, 2015 - SEPTEMBER 13, 2015
Two California Bay Area artists, Art Hazelwood and Ronnie Goodman, confront and tackle such present-day realities as homelessness, poverty, war, corruption and violence in their art. Consonant with the exhibition of works from Mexico’s Taller de Gráfica Popular and squarely in its tradition of sociopolitical commentary—and, perhaps most important, populist in theme and medium—the linocuts, woodcuts, etchings and books in this exhibition show two skilled artists fearless in goading viewers from complacency or from indifference to injustice. They are artists not to be detoured from speaking to the issues.

William U. Eiland, director

As mentioned above the exhibition is scheduled to coincide with an exhibition of the Taller de Gráfica Popular, the political print shop founded in Mexico City in the 1930s. It is an honor to be exhibited as the contemporary counterpoint to the TGP.

There are 30 pieces in the exhibition. Below are some installation shots and invidual images. The range is quite broad from the late 1990s to the present.

Next to the exhibition was a print by Casper Banjo.
