Why attend the opening reception for “Red, Black, Green”?
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Discover meaningful gifts for friends and family! Most of the pieces in the exhibit are for sale, at very reasonable prices.
- 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!
