Uptown goes Downtown breaking art boundaries … and not just geographically
The Harlem Fine Arts Show and Carter Burden Gallery in Chelsea collaborate to uniquely present seven multicultural older professional artists in a new exhibition featuring social justice and other themes in evocative works of art. The virtual exhibition runs from January 7th thru February 3rd at 548 West 28th Street, 534 in New York City. “Art Breaking Boundaries” is the preview to the 2021 International Harlem Fine Arts Show.
This new hybrid live and virtual art show model is an art collaborative co-curated by Marlena Vaccaro, Carter Burden Gallery (CBG) Curator, and Dion Clarke, President of JWD Enterprises, Inc. and Founder of the Harlem Fine Arts Show (HFAS). “We are pushing the envelope during COVID-19 and reinventing the art scene with 3-D technology bringing the Harlem Fine Arts Show to Chelsea and the world virtually,” said Dion Clark, Founder of Harlem Fine Arts Show. “And now, nothing will stop us from sharing art as a multicultural experience.”
Virtual events are convenient but it doesn’t mean they’ll replace in-person experiences and walking around the Carter Burden Gallery. The hybrid exhibit model was key to our collaboration and the exhibit theme “Art Breaking Boundaries.” “Carter Burden Gallery is delighted to form a partnership with the Harlem Fine Arts Show. The January exhibit features older professional multicultural artists’ expressions and experiences. The exchange of artists’ work between the Carter Burden Gallery and the HFAS is the beginning of an innovative approach to addressing ageism through a multicultural lens within the art world,” said Marlena Vaccaro, Carter Burden Gallery (CBG) Curator.
New Unique Exhibition by Older Professional Multicultural Artists
The seven multicultural artists featured range from local New Yorkers to those who migrated here from abroad. They have been featured in prestigious galleries and museums, both in the U.S. and internationally, and studied at world-renowned art academic institutions. As older professional multicultural artists, they serve as positive role models that make statements to affect change. The varied works of art exhibited reflect their unique perspectives inspired by the faces and experiences of their individual lives. The exhibiting artists are: Ademola Olugebefola, Cheryl D. Miller, Donna Ladson, Al Johnson, Earlene Cox, Elton Tucker, and Lazarus Tandi.
