When: Jan. 31-March 6 2016
This weekend is the last chance to see “All Me” at the Catamount Arts Center in St. Johnsbury. It features the self-taught artist’s colorfully graphic work depicting slavery, forced labor and racial injustice. Rembert creates his scenes not on canvas but with tooled leather, paints and dyes, which enhances the work’s tactility and sense of permanence. Growing up in the rural South, he was active in the civil rights movement and spent time on a chain gang. Rembert’s largely autobiographical images are incongruently gentle illustrations of historical abuses of power.
