Out of Easy Reach contains works by twenty-four U.S. based female-identifying contemporary artists from the Black and Latinx Diasporas. Working across a variety of media, these artists counter conventional accounts of abstraction in art history that have often overlooked the artistic contributions of women of color. The exhibition and opening reception are free and open to the public. Learn more about Out of Easy Reach on the Grunwald Gallery's website
