Special Exhibition: Southern Roots: The Paintings of Winfred Rembert 
Winfred Rembert works in the medium of carved and dyed leather, creating vibrant and rhythmic imagery of his life in 1950s Georgia. A storyteller, Rembert reveals images of culture, community, family, and struggle through intense color and repeating patterns. His most recognizable pieces depict pickers at work in the cotton fields, a grueling task the artist himself experienced in his childhood and later on a prison chain gang. Over 25 works, including the premiere of several recent paintings by the artist, are featured in the exhibition. The artworks in Southern Roots appear courtesy of Adelson Galleries, Boston, and the artist. Southern Roots is on display through March 18, 2018. The exhibition is underwritten by the Van Kampen Boyer Molinari Foundation and PNC Bank. Additional support has been provided by the Michigan Humanities Council and the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Arts. 
The Muskegon Museum of Art is located next to Hackley Public Library in downtown Muskegon. Call 231-720-2570 or go to for visitor information.
