http://eugenemartinart.com/. This video clip documents seventeen works of art by visual artist Eugene J. Martin that are hanging in the "Beyond Black: Ed Clark, Eugene Martin and John T. Scott" exhibit at the Louisiana State University Museum (http://www.lsumoa.com/) in the Shaw Center of the Arts, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, January 29-May 8, 2011. The works include paintings, mixed media works and drawings Martin created in the 1960's-2003 in Washington D.C., Chapel Hill NC, and Lafayette Louisiana. Due to copyright reasons, works by Ed Clark and John T. Scott are not shown in this video clip. Natalie Mault is the Curator of the exhibit.

The LSU Museum's press release reads as follows: "Beyond Black is the LSU Museum of Art's first exhibition to recognize the contributions of Louisiana's African-American abstract artists.

Beyond Black at the LSU MoA proudly presents a selection of works by Ed Clark, Eugene Martin and John T. Scott, three African-American artists who rose to prominence in Louisiana or worked in the state for extended periods of time. While overlooked in their time, these prolific artists tested the language of abstract art and devoted their careers to exploring the forms, methods and styles of the movement.

The works of Clark, Martin and Scott are uniquely linked to one another through their innovative artistic approaches and their unquenchable desire to create as a definition of self-identity. They dedicated themselves to experimentation of structure, style and materials. From Clark's gestural brush-stroke paintings, to Martin's vivid hard-edge canvases, to the vibrantly colored three-dimensional work of Scott, Beyond Black highlights these artists who worked in the tradition of free-form abstraction.

The LSU Museum of Art is proud to partner with the New Orleans African-American Museum in Treme on programming and events, and as a venue to showcase additional paintings by Eugene Martin. The Museum also proudly partners with the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities in New Orleans, a venue with additional works on display by John T. Scott."

Funding for the Beyond Black exhibit was provided by AT&T Louisiana, Charles E. Schwing, Marilyn Barbier, Mollie and Marjorie Childs, Susan H. Dawson, Mary Terrell and Cheney Joseph, Cary Saurage, Sue Turner, and John G. Turner and Jerry G. Fischer.
