Visit a Black owned art gallery this holiday
Click to read this week’s Pigment Newsletter.
We began following an IG trend during Art Miami of listing all the Black owned galleries across the country and we’re picking it up here along with photos of some we’ve been privileged to visit. Stop in over the holidays and perhaps leave with something you love.
Hear an interview with Atlanta based artist Alfred Conteh, at Art on the 9ines.
Artist Jamele Wright Sr. paid Pigment International the highest compliment by citing our 2021 article about him in ART with being one of the best ever written about him. Wright is keeping it moving, literally as he relocates his home over the holiday. His work was most recently seen with September Gray Gallery at Red Dot in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood. “My work creates a conversation about family, tradition, the spiritual and material, the relationship between Africa and the South. My process is influenced by the way hip-hop gathers different cultures together through sampling and is charged with an energy channeled and passed through the Pan African lineage.”
Yvonne Toney of the Cotton Seed Creative attended the closing bash for the Basqiat Exhibition in New York mounted by the family of Jean-Michel Basquiat. Yvonne is shown in this week’s newsletter with Lisane Basquiat. Next up at the Art on the 9ines Pop-up = Art and Mental Health.
