VALUING THE BLACK OWNED ART GALLERY WITH CYNTHIA HENRY
WHEN: Thursday, October 15 at 7pm EDT
$10.00 – $30.00
The Black owned art gallery is a Balm in Gilead for Black artists and collectors. While historically overlooked in the larger art world, the Black gallerist has provided us a place to, not just buy art, but a place to be educated about Black art and artists, connect to artists and in the case of at least one gallery receive free gifts of art. According to a recent article in the New York Times “there is only one African-American gallerist in the 176-member Art Dealers Association of America, a professional group.” Yet because of a dedicated client base the Black gallery continues to grow and thrive and serve as a pivotal connection point in communities across the country. This conversation with gallerist will offer insight into their triumphs and challenges.
