BLACK ART IN AMERICA, NRM PROJECTS &
HARLEM BREWING COMPANY
As many people are aware, the world is not entirely fair to artists, and it is even less so to artists who are African-American. Relatively few art galleries and museums in the United States show the work of African-American artists, creating a problem of invisibility that suggests black artists and their work do not exist.

In the same way, there is an established…Continue

The digital art that I have loved so far is that of some of my photographer friends who use great creativity and skill in enhancing their images into exciting and beautiful works of art. Then, there are those that invariably look like they were done on the…Continue
There is great disagreement among Black artists in Sacramento. We are trying to work more cohesively to be more effective at reaching out to the diverse community in the Capitol of California. But we seem to be stuck on whether "Black" should be in title of what we call ourselves. This my sound like a trivial point but some of feel strongly that "Black art" is what the whole thing is about! To cherish and esteem and proclaim our Black pride to the world.…Continue
