“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.

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.
