“The Black Family Through the Artist Eye: A Virtual exhibit celebrating Black History month in 2021.
The virtual exhibit, The Black Family Through the Artist Eye reflects the theme for this year’s Black History month, The Black Family: Representation, Identity and Diversity. The exhibit, created in collaboration with the Art of the African Diaspora, presents a wide range of images that Bay Area black artist found to be reflective of elements representing the Black family.
The diversity and configurations of the Black family, of any family, is limitless as is suggested in the exhibit. eighteen artists are presenting fifty original works of art using different media including paintings, porcelain, photography, drawings and sculptures.
Viewing the exhibit virtually, not only allows you immediate viewing of the artwork provided by the artist specifically for the exhibit but also provides you with information about the art pieces as well as the artists. In addition, you will have the option to visit virtually the artist gallery. Some of the artwork will be for sale and available through the artist’s website.
