The Halsey can always be counted on for thoughtful, high-caliber exhibitions by renowned artists, and this year is no different. Award-winning Washington, D.C. artist Renée Stout draws her inspiration from, among other things, the African Diaspora, and works in mixed media. She also uses an alter ego named Fatima Mayfield, a fortune teller and herbalist, to explore human relationships and social issues through her work. Stout’s got a strong sense of humor and a thriving social conscience, both of which come through in her art. Her exhibit will be accompanied by an evening of readings from the poet and essayist Kevin Young, who wrote the principal essay for the exhibit catalogue. —Elizabeth Pandolfi
