In celebration of Black History Month, the City’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities will host an art exhibit featuring the works of several local African-American artists.
The exhibit, titled “Dark Waters,” opened with a reception February 8 and continues through March 8 in the Spotlight Gallery located at Pine Camp Arts and Community Center at 4901 Old Brook Road.
“Dark Waters” is the culmination of artistic expression from several contemporary artists who were asked to interpret their impressions of the impact of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade.
The works on display will include Austina Hume’s ZongZorgCare, a mixed-media sculpture that served as the inspiration piece for this exhibition.
Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
