St. Louis native Dominic Chambers paints and draws large-scale scenes that depict Black men and women in leisure and contemplation--often reading books--as he draws inspiration from literary narratives in books, mythology and Black history. His work has been collected by the Perez Art Museum and J.P. Morgan Chase Bank Collection. He had his first solo institutional exhibition at the August Wilson African American Cultural Center. He's also curated exhibits at the Kravets Wehby Gallery in New York and has been a resident at Yale Norfolk and the New York Studio Residency Program.
