Pamela Conyers-Hinson moves through the world investigating and experimenting. Often this work is done through the use of discarded and forgotten materials, the shared stories of women of color, or the magnification of a subject’s journey. Nothing embodies this more than her mask work: the physical and intellectual relationship developed between artist and subject through touch and conversation as the material is applied, and the manifestation of a face whose ancestral facial features are embellished and elevated by the artist through hand-painted design.
Most of the work in this exhibit was completed between 2018 and 2020 and some pieces were made at KANEKO; all are infused with questions, vulnerability, and disruption. Conyers-Hinson’s use of multiple mediums: wood, bronze, marble, alabaster, clay, and textiles, represents the diversity of her subject matter and the intimate and tactile ways she engages with her audience and her community.
We have created a safe environment for this Opening so that everyone attending can enjoy themselves. By reserving a space for this Opening you accept the following:
Conyers-Hinson holds a Masters of Arts in Teaching and Organizational Leadership and a BA in Studio Art. She is a classically trained sculptor using the lost wax method for bronze casting and traditional methods for stone carving and her interest in sustainability within the arts is evident by her use of experimental natural mediums. She received the Council of American Art Society Inc. Award for Excellence in Representational Sculpture and was a 2018 Fellow at The Union for Contemporary Art in Omaha, NE. She has taught art all over Nebraska: in rural communities with exhibitions from the Sheldon Museum of Art, for Joslyn Art Museum, and in after school programs focused on underserved populations. Conyers-Hinson has exhibited artwork in New York, Illinois, and Virginia, is a member of the National Association of Women Artists (New York Chapter), and recently published a book of artwork focusing on capturing ancestral facial features titled “Expressions of Black Heritage Through 50 Faces.”
