A founding member of Collaborative Projects, the NYC artist’s group responsible for the landmark 1980 Times Square Show, Dickson is a formidable talent able to depict the grit of New York with a sublime grace akin to Edward Hopper and Rockwell Kent. Her works are held in numerous museums, including The Whitney Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Brooklyn Museum.

From 1988, “Party Girls” depicts a young mother, assumedly with her daughter. The looseness of the stylized figures against the slate-black paper evokes both the MTV-era fashions of the time, as well as influences of the Ashcan School. —Courtesy of Doyle
