"This isn’t just a Color School roundup, however: The show includes artists deploying color to completely different ends, like the trippy pattern-based work of Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi, as well as some varying landscape photography artists like Anne Rowland and William Christenberry."

Women’s artwork is never done

Mark Jenkins, The Washington Post

"Although Stout’s African heritage is central to her artistic vision, 'Tales of the Conjure Woman' also invokes the power of women’s traditional roles: maker, healer, counselor, seductress."

"'Tales of the Conjure Woman,' a sprawling survey of new work by the artist, marries the rootworker’s art with modernism."

In the galleries: D.C. artist summons the supernatural in the everyday

"The lights are low at Hemphill Fine Arts, as if in preparation for a seance. What sort of creature Renee Stout’s eerie 'Wild World' might summon from the darkness, though, is impossible to predict."

Kriston Capps, Washington City Paper

"'Wild World,' the artist’s fifth solo show at Hemphill, envisions a steampunk universe that—bear with me—has nothing to do with Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, polished brass, or even Europe for that matter. Stout’s found a portal to a place that blends hoodoo and Santería with gadgets and gizmos.

Michael O'Sullivan, The Washington Post

"If it sounds like a straightforward, if slightly poetic, definition of the human subconscious, that's pretty much what it is. The architectural structure Stout refers to is a metaphor taken from an old, recurring dream of hers, in which the artist would find herself wandering through a familiar-looking house whose inner doors opened onto rooms she never knew existed."
