Valerie Maynard: Lost and Found


This one-gallery retrospective celebrates the six-decade career of Baltimore-based printmaker and sculptor Valerie Maynard. The exhibition features a range of works drawn largely from her studio, including the landmark No Apartheid series from the 1980s and 1990s, which embodies her unique ability to combine diverse techniques (assemblage, pochoir, and monotype) into both deeply personal and profoundly political new forms of art on paper. A rarely exhibited selection of Maynard’s early sculpture will also be on view. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue published by the BMA and featuring essays by Bill Gaskins, Edward Spriggs, Nikky Finney, and Alexis De Veaux.

Co-curated by Asma Naeem, BMA Eddie Brown and C. Sylvia Brown Chief Curator and Leslie Cozzi, BMA Associate Curator of Prints, Drawings & Photographs.
