Art Hazelwood and Ronnie Goodman: Speaking to the Issues

June 13, 2015 - September 13, 2015
Martha Thompson Dinos and Dorothy Alexander Roush Galleries

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.
