Known for her oil paintings from the 1960s and her narrative story quilts, this exhibition explores a decade of work that reflects Ringgold’s political activism and her personal story within the context of the women’s movement. Faith Ringgold, born 1930 in Harlem, is an artist, writer, activist and teacher.  She is a role model for artists, as well scholars, and continues to influence and inspire others. Faith is one of a very few black women, who helped galvanize the Black and Feminist Art movements of the 1970. This exhibition is an in depth look at that vital period.

ACA Galleries is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am – 6pm, and on Sunday & Monday by appointment. Call 212-206-8080 or info@acagalleries.con
