Painting from The Art of the African Diaspora exhibition at Gray Loft Gallery

Join us for the opening and artists’ reception for The Art of the African Diaspora, an exhibit of work by Bay Area artists that includes abstract painting, photography and sculpture. This celebration of artists of African descent is a satellite exhibit of the Richmond Art Center. In 1997 two artists – the late Jan Hart-Schuyers and late Rae Louise Hayward – founded The Art of Living Black after their realization that Black artists were not being equitably represented in contemporary art spaces. “We’re just a group of artists that share the same dream. We’ve decided to do something about it.” said Hart-Schuyers. For over two decades The Art of Living Black has created opportunities for hundreds of artists; offering important professional opportunities and developing new audiences for their work.
The title of the exhibit changed this year to the Art of the African Diaspora.

Artist Name: Orin Carpenter, Kelvin Curry, Gene Dominique, Anna Edwards, Raymond L. Haywood, Dulama LeGrande, Will Parish, Justice Renaissance, Ron Moultrie Saunders, Akili Simba
