Something To Look Forward To pays homage to the exceptional talent, unique vision, and courageous persistence of mature artists who have created dynamic abstract images and objects during extended and successful careers. The 22 African American artists included here--Betty Blayton, Frank Bowling, Yvonne Pickering Carter, Edward Clark, Melvin Edwards, Sam Gilliam, David Hammons, Gerald Jackson, Lawrence Compton Kolawole, Alvin Loving, Richard Mayhew, Sam Middleton, Mary Lovelace O'Neal, Joe Overstreet, Howardena Pindell, Helen Evans Ramsaran, John T. Scott, Sylvia Snowden, Mildred Thompson, Jack Whitten, William T. Williams, and Frank Wimberley--are all over 60. April Kingsley highlights little-known but significant details about the artists and their work. Franklin Sirmans comments on the complex layers of style and meaning that compel the audacity of the art and artists. Reflections on abstract art by Geoffrey Jacques illuminate essential questions about the history and status of the artists represented.
