The artwork looks like native wood carvings with the subjects in modern

Contemporary wardrobes. Very whimsical my favorite is “Pin on Lunch” almost Mardi Grasesque?

In a flat relief they are like a dual dimensional friezes. Though freestanding like a sculpture they remind me in the use of the medium of paint and carving of the decorative capping of a temple in the oldNo world or neoclassical style of our Nation’s memorials, Courthouses, and libraries. However the artist Williams is depicting scenes of his culture with joy of dance and Jazz instead of Alexander’s chariots and soldiers in March around the cornice of the ceilings and soffits.

I apologize I don't believe the name of the piece is Pin on Lunch which actually was a showing of Lavons work a few years back.

The piece I love is the one with the 3 ladies in the foreground the one in the yellow and orange patern dress hair blowing one direction pearls in the other and 3 men behind. With on tall dude behind. Actually unable to identify the name of the piece like the obvious lady in the "Red Dress."

I'll do my best to link??

Nope Fail. Google search Lavon Williams art Pin on Lunch will take you to a showing he had in Kentucky on Folk art scroll through the pieces the one I described is so very Identifiable!
