If We Must Die… Ebony G. Patterson bears witness to the violence and social injustices imposed upon the invisible and the voiceless. Known for her drawings, tapestries, videos, sculptures and installations that involve surfaces layered with flowers, glitter, lace and bead, Ebony G. Patterson’s works investigate forms of embellishment as they relate to youth culture within disenfranchised communities. That work is the focus of the exhibition at Rowan University Art Gallery, Ebony G. Patterson: If We Must Die. The exhibit is on display from February 11 - April 20, 2019. In conjunction with the exhibit, a conversation with the artist will be held on Wednesday, March 27 at 5:00 p.m. in the gallery, led by visiting scholar Colette Gaiter, a professor in the Department of Art & Design and Department of Africana Studies at the University of Delaware. A reception will follow.
