    FEBRUARY at McGuffey Art Center: Black History Exhibits January 29-February 24, 2019

    OPENING RECEPTION Friday February 1st, 5:30-7:30

    McGuffey Art Center will present Black History Month 2019, a month-long celebration of the black creative community in Charlottesville. Our building, and the resources of our association, will be dedicated to showing the work of black visual and performing artists, several of whom will be making their debut exhibits. Artists work in various disciplines, including drawing, painting, pottery, photography, and the art of creating musical instruments from gourds. Performance Art planned during the month-long program is kicked off by a special First Friday dance and drumming performance by longtime McGuffey member Chihamba.

    Featured Artists include Darrell Rose, Rose Hill, Michael E. Williams, Anthony Scott, Dena Jenkins, Bolanle Adeboye, Liz Cherry Jones, plus musicians, drummers, dancers, and a story teller.



    McGuffey will also host a Congo mask-making workshop run by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts as part of the programming for their exhibit Congo Masks: Masterpieces from Central Africa. There will be live musical performances every Saturday, story-telling on two Saturdays; and dancing and drumming after our First Friday reception. All are free and open to the public.
