UP SOUTH: Reflections on the Great Migration by ransome

In collaboration with Black Dimensions in Art, Inc., Opalka Gallery is pleased to present a new solo exhibition from the artist ransome. Over a sixty-year period, Black people left behind poverty and Jim Crow in search of new lives in the North, Midwest, and West. In new paintings, installation, and sculpture, he reflects on this defining moment in America’s history and the ways in which his work is interwoven with this historic narrative.
