City Lights: What's Going Around Examines Lou Stovall's Political Art

In the galleries: Posters as a medium for serious but jubilant communication

By Mark Jenkins, The Washington Post, July 9, 2021.

"The title of Hemphill Artworks’ “What’s Going Around: Lou Stovall & the Community Poster” gives the longtime D.C. printmaker top billing. But the show includes pieces by other notables who squeegeed ink across silk-screens at Workshop Inc., the studio Stovall founded in 1968. These include Sam Gilliam, Gene Davis and Paul Reed, as well as Stovall’s frequent collaborator, artist-musician Lloyd McNeill, and his spouse, artist Di Stovall."
