Description:
Reginald A. Gammon, Jr. (March 31, 1921 - November 4, 2005) Reginald aka "Reggie" Gammon was a teacher, painter and printmaker. His work depicted the civil rights struggles of the 1960's, jazz and blues musicians, and scenes from everyday life. Born and raised in Philadelphia, he moved to New York City in 1948. Gammon was a member of Spiral, and with Benny Andrews formed the Black Emergency Cultural Coalition in 1969. He taught art at Western Michigan University for 21 years, retiring in 1991 as Full Professor Emeritus of Fine Arts and Humanities. Later in life, he moved to New Mexico, where he joined New Mexico Afro-American Artist Guild and the Albuquerque United Artists, and was a founding member of the Grounds Print Workshop & Gallery.
