Roland Ayers: Calligraphy of Dreams
On view through October 24, 2021
Germantown-native Roland Ayers (1932–2014) developed a unique style and iconography that responded to the social and political climate of his time and referenced the broader canons of art history. Calligraphy of Dreams offers a thirty-year survey of Ayers’ progression toward his most noted medium: intricate drawings of ink on paper.
