|Dream Big. Happy New Year! This month we are highlighting artists Sam Gilliam and Frank X. Tolbert in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. and in anticipation of African American History Month. The primitive quality of Tolbert's pieces recall African works, while the vibrant abstractions of Gilliam's paintings make him one of the foremost African American Color Field painters.|

Sam Gilliam's works have been described as belonging to Abstract Expressionism and Lyrical Abstraction. He is recognized as the first artist to introduce the idea of a painted canvas hanging without stretcher bars, a major contribution to the Color Field School. Recently, he has worked with polypropylene, computer generated imaging, metallic and iridescent acrylics, hand-made paper, aluminum, steel, and plastic.
