About

Signed by the artist lower right: "Sedrick Huckaby III" Sedrick Huckaby's large-scale paintings draw inspiration from his family history and his African-American roots. Born in Fort Worth, Texas, Mr. Huckaby received his B.F.A. from Boston University in 1997 and his M.F.A. from Yale University in 1999. He has taught as a professor at Tarrant County College in Forth Worth and currently is a professor of water media at the University of Texas in Arlington. Mr. Huckaby has been honored as a Fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, as a Kate Neal Kinley Memorial Fellow at the University of Illinois, and as a Brandeis Mortimer Hays Traveling Fellow, which gave him the opportunity to study the works of European masters abroad. His own work has been included in exhibitions at the Studio Museum in Harlem and the Park Avenue Armory in New York City, at the African American Museum in Dallas, at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts in Texas, and at the Hammond House Museum in Atlanta. His work A Love Supreme, comprised of pieces forming an 80-foot long painting of quilts created by his grandmother, celebrates both jazz and quiltmaking as central elements of African-American culture. It serves as a foundation for his Guggenheim Fellowship project: to explore and paint the tradition of quiltmaking around the United States, and to add some of those paintings to A Love Supreme to more fully realize his intention in that installation. Mr. Huckaby's work is included in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, the African American Museum in Dallas, and the Kansas African American Museum in Wichita. He is the recipient of the Lewis Comfort Tiffany Award and the Imagination Celebration Spirit of the Future Award, among others.
