The Newark Museum will hold a major retrospective of the work of Romare Bearden from May 23 through August 19.

“Romare Bearden: Southern Recollections” features 80 works of art drawn from Mint Museum in Charlotte, N.C., and from national public and private collections. It examines how life in the South had a lasting impact on Bearden’s work.

Complementing this major exhibition is an installation of Bearden’s work from the Newark Museum’s collection. Spanning the 1940s through the 1980s, this show highlights Bearden’s exploration of a wide variety of media — including collage, printmaking, painting and watercolor and features the major themes and subjects Bearden explored throughout his long and productive career, such as jazz, landscape, the nude and his native southern culture.

On Thursday, June 7, the museum will host a jazz tribute to Bearden with pianist and composer Geri Allen. The music is from 7 to 8 p.m., and will be followed by a reception and gallery viewing. Tickets are $15 for members and $25 fo non-members. Call (973) 596-6613 to order tickets by phone or order them online.
