Interpreting the Familiar: The Art of Hattie Marshall Duncan

Jostens Gallery  |  June 6, 2018 - August 19, 2018

African American folk sculptor Hattie Marshall Duncan creates expressive sculpture that offers a loving, humorous portrayal of her hometown community in Jackson, Tennessee. She uses common household items such as wire hangers, plastic bottles and old stockings to build the frames. After molding the figures, she adds texture and detail by applying coffee grounds for hair, pine cones for hats, and broken eggshells for clothing.
