Amy Pleasant: Passing Through

Mansion Stairwell

On View July 30, 2022 - July 28, 2024

Passing Through features the works of Birmingham-based artist Amy Pleasant. Pleasant’s large-scale canvases and graphic paintings overtake the walls of the Hunter’s historic mansion stairwell, welcoming visitors to the early American galleries. Her figurative silhouettes deal with complex subjects, connecting traditions of American portraiture with contemporary themes of identity and human behaviors.

Amy Pleasant has been recognized by such prestigious organizations as the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and Joan Mitchell Foundation.
