Carroll Sockwell

Carroll Sockwell was active in Washington, DC, from the late 1950s until his death in 1992.  He was widely considered to be among the leading black artists of his time.

Sockwell’s works have been shown at and are held in the collections of numerous important museums, including the Corcoran Gallery, the Brooklyn Museum, the Whitney, the Ringling Museum, and (as a favorite of Walter Hopps) the Menil Collection, and many others.

Sockwell exhibited at most DC-area galleries, including Jefferson Place, the Washington Project for the Arts, Barnett-Aden, Middendorf Gallery, Barbara Fiedler, Harry Lunn, Marin-Price, and Osuna galleries.
