‘The Lessons I Leave You: Paintings by Ayana Ross’ ends on September 10

The Muskegon Museum of Art will  host this exhibit through September 10.

Ayana Ross draws from family, current events, history, art, experiences growing up in the American South, and Biblical stories viewed through a contemporary lens.

Touching on universal themes, her paintings offer an opening for viewers to find themselves and their own experiences.

A recurring theme is that of parent and child, of memories of the past and wishes and advice for the future.

Ross is based in McDonough, GA, and maintains a studio in Atlanta.
