Biographical / Historical:
Here, Look at Mine!' Selected Works of John N. Robinson and Larry Francis Lebby displayed selected works of two African American artists, John N. Robinson and Larry Francis Lebby. The title of the exhibition was taken from the title of a John Robinson painting that depicts his grandchildren, sitting at his dining room table, proudly showing their art and seeking his approval of their work. Both men use their families as subjects; and both are realists in expressing and visualizing their feelings about the world. Robinson's major interest was watercolor painting, and Lebby's was stone lithography. In this exhibition, the artists invite you to 'Here, Look at Mine!' and to enjoy their finished and most representative pieces. The exhibition was held at the Anacostia Neighborhood Museum from November 14, 1982 - February 27, 1983.
