24_E_JThe Art of Eugene Martin:  A Great Concept
Beau Rivage Resort & Casino Gallery / Gallery of African American Art
June 5 – December 1, 2012


Eugene Martin (1938-2005) is best known for his imaginative, complex mixed media collages on paper, his often gently humorous drawings, and his paintings that incorporate whimsical allusions to animal, machine and structural imagery.  Martin called his works that straddled abstraction and representation “satirical abstracts.”  His art defies categorization.

Funded in part by the Mississippi Arts Commission, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency
