North Adams, MA — Independent Art Projects is pleased to announce CYNTHIA-REEVES’s exhibition Incitements of Folly, a new show of touching works on paper and paintings by Baton Rouge artist, Dawn Black. Opening with an artist reception from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 4th, the exhibition runs through Sunday, May 3rd.

Black work examines the practice of masquerade and its role in relation to conceptions of identity and power. The artist depicts people from various sources, societies and time periods in gouache, watercolor, and ink on paper and is particularly interested in the various permutations of social practices that engender power hierarchies. Her compositions are influenced by eastern perspective, theatre, and myth making in general.
