The Third Annual Northwest African American Fine Arts Exhibit opened Aug. 5 and will run through Sept. 5 at the Art/Not Terminal Gallery, 205 Westlake Ave.
This year's theme is "Hidden Masters," The Life and Times of Northwest African American Artists.
Each year NAAFA convenes a broad spectrum of artists of African American heritage who live in the Pacific Northwest to showcase their unique visions and perspectives in a wide range of artistic media. This year several artists will be contributing their images and designs, representing more than 200 years of creative expression.
"It is an absolute joy and inspiration to be able to bring together such a talented group of artists for this exhibit," said Robert L. Horton, curator. "The Northwest African American Fine Arts Exhibit is becoming a permanent part of Seattle's summer arts celebrations."
The artists will gather at an opening reception from 1 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11 at the Art/Not Terminal Gallery. Refreshments will be served. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, from 1 to 6 p.m. Saturday, and from 1:30 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
Special showings and group tours available by request.
