Dawn Black: Life as a Masquerade

dawn-topofpostLouisiana-based Dawn Black examines the masquerades people employ to conceal their identities. Meticulously drawn in gouache, watercolor, and ink on paper, the figures in her Conceal Project span time periods and costumes in more than 200 postcard-size portraits of real individuals in masks, uniforms, haute couture and ceremonial dress.  She is on view at the Columbus Museum’s Yarbrough Gallery through February 2013.
