Pressing On: The Graphic Art of Wilmer Jennings is the first publication to examine a large body of work of Wilmer Jennings (1910–1990), who studied under Hale Woodruff while earning a degree from Morehouse College, Atlanta. Jennings then came to Rhode Island School of Design for further training as a jewelry designer, painter, and printmaker. He stayed in Rhode Island and designed jewelry for Imperial Pearl Company while continuing to work on his art. Jennings achieved artistic recognition primarily for his intimate wood engravings. He represents the third generation of African American artists active in the state.
This volume complements the exhibition Pressing On: The Graphic Art of Wilmer Jennings, on view from September 29, 2000, through January 7, 2001, at the RISD Museum. view details
