Curator’s Statement

I would like to thank these artists for submitting their work. These artists are family. I met some of them as many as 20 years ago when African American Artists had few venues to showcase their work. Because of this, we would travel all over the country together from New York to California. We would stay in some cities up to a month. Some of us would share hotels, travel and food. Because of these bonds, not only was our work elevated, our business plans improved. We became a large family of Artists. It has been my honor to pull this show together and unite a group of friends.
