A very exciting art exhibit opens July 5 at the Interchurch Art Gallery: “Red, Black, Green — An Exhibit of Local African American Artists.” Here’s why think you should try not to miss it.

  1. See cool art!  The main reason to go to a gallery is for the art, and the art in “Red, Black, Green” won’t disappoint. Learn more about the pieces here.
  2. Meet interesting people! You can meet the creators of the works in the exhibit … many of the artists see their art as an intersection of spirituality and striving for social justice. Chances are the other non-artists who’ll be attending the exhibit opening are interesting people as well. Make some new friends.
  3. Learn the significance of “Red, Black, Green.” Those are the colors of the Pan-African flag. The three Pan-African colors on the flag represent: red: the blood that unites all people of Black African ancestry, and shed for liberation; black: black people whose existence as a nation, though not a nation-state, is affirmed by the existence of the flag; and. green: the abundant natural wealth of Africa.
  4. Discover meaningful gifts for friends and family! Most of the pieces in the exhibit are for sale, at very reasonable prices.
  5. Eat tasty treats! If the main reason art-lovers attend opening receptions is for the art is for the art, the second reason is for the munchies. There will be plenty, enjoy!
