We showcase visual artists in any medium whose work originates from, is reflective of, or responds to engagement with the people and place of Africa and the ongoing global Diaspora from the continent. We welcome those who proudly claim the labels attached to these notions, and those who just as adamantly work toward their evolution.
We embrace all notions of a “gallery.” Open Gallery is first and foremost an exhibition where the curious as well as the converted discover art from people and places of Africa and the Diaspora.
Like the inexpensive gallery seats to an excellent show, it is accessible without compromising quality.
It is the “peanut gallery,” the public of art lovers who will find a space for dialog within our pages. Academics are welcome, right along with the unschooled.
Open Gallery is the front porch where candid and poignant conversations happen, where you find yourself lingering, enjoying new and familiar people and ideas.
