Introduction by Mark Pomerantz

This catalogue was published by the Frye Art Museum in association with the University of Washington Press in conjunction with it’s exhibition Alan Rohan Crite: Artist Reporter of the African American Community, coordinated by guest curator Mark Pomerantz (March 10–May 6, 2001).
This exhibition offers a comprehensive scope of the artist’s remarkable career. Adopting the title of “artist-reporter”, Crite recorded the daily life and urban landscape of African Americans in Boston’s Roxbury and South End districts during the 1930s and 1940s. His oil paintings, watercolors, drawings, and prints capture the spirit of an era with expressive lines and vivid colors.
This publication includes an introduction by Mark Pomerantz and essays by Barbara Earl Thomas and Edmund Barry Gaither, along with full-color illustrations of the exhibition artworks, and an exhibition checklist.
