The Inpost Artspace’s Summer/New Mexico Jazz Festival exhibition features Ranging Conversation: Artwork by Edgar Sorrells-Adewale. Spanning 1985 to the present, this body of work interacts with, and mixes, various materials. Sorrells-Adewale states, “I view art-making as similar to wide ranging conversations with friends. Sometimes a certain musical tune inspires a way to develop an idea”. The work in Ranging Conversation includes mixed-media paintings, sculptural forms using various materials, graphite drawings and large paper collages. Edgar Sorrells-Adewale was born in Philadelphia, PA and received his BS degree from Morgan State College (now University), Baltimore, MD, as well as an MFA from Pennsylvania State University, State College, PA. He has taught in the art departments of Howard University, Washington, DC, Cheyney State College (now University), Cheyney, PA and Santa Fe Community College, Santa Fe, NM. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in venues that include U.S. Ambassador Reddick’s residence in Niamey, Niger, West Africa, various European sites in connection with the Arts America Program, USIA arranged exhibition, “Crossing Over, Changing Places”, The Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC, The Emerson Gallery, McLean Project for the Arts, McLean VA, The Studio Museum of Harlem, New York, NY, and many more. He currently works and lives with his wife Raine, a basket weaver, in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
