On July 8, 2020 L.A. Louver Gallery in Venice sent out an email to its mailing list introducing a new print by Alison Saar entitled Rise. The linoleum print depicts a Black woman in a palette of ochre, white, and black holding up a fist in protest. She is determined, powerful, divine even – a quality suggested by the chisel marks that radiate outward from her head like a halo. L.A. Louver, which has represented Saar’s work since 2006, announced that all proceeds from the sale of the 100-print series would be donated by Saar, the gallery, and Leslie Ross-Robertson to local Los Angeles community organizations: Dignity and Power Now (DPN), Summaeverythang Community Center, and Crenshaw Dairy Mart. The print sold out in less than a day, raising $25,000 to support these local Los Angeles community organizations.
Signed, editioned, and dated on recto.
