The focus installation includes two watercolors on loan from a local private collection and works drawn from Evergreen’s permanent collection.

    Seventeen Men: Portraits of Black Civil War Soldiers
    December 8, 2016June 4, 2017
    Location: Evergreen Museum & Library Price: Included with paid museum admission and on view as part of the guided tour, or $3 for the exhibition only

    The faces and names of seventeen African-American soldiers who served under Captain William A. Prickitt are recorded in a rare surviving miniature photo album that was treasured by the Union Army officer, passed down through generations of his family, and is now part of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. A mix of free and enslaved blacks ranging in age from 15 to 50 who reportedly saved their young officer from extreme illness, the soldiers have been enlarged to life size in colored pencil drawings by Michigan artist Shayne Davidson, who meticulously researched the lives of the men she was depicting. The exhibition features her drawings and research, and includes Civil War-era memorabilia drawn from the collections of Evergreen Museum & Library and the Johns Hopkins University Sheridan Libraries.

Rawlings began her practice as a portraitist, mostly of imagined people, then as a landscape painter.

She attended the Maryland Institute College of Art and holds an MFA from the University of Maryland.
