Art Exhibition Celebrates Black Artists in Alachua County

The Alachua County Community Remembrance Project (AACRP) and the Gainesville Fine Arts Association (GFAA) present “Umoja: A Celebration of Black Artists in Alachua County.” The Exhibition will be on view at GFAA Gallery (1314 South Main Street, Gainesville) from May 25 through June 19, 2021, with an in-person reception on May 28, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Visitors can expect a variety of mediums, including sculpture, ceramics, painting, and photography in the exhibit as well as an immersive experience with talks from members of the ACCRP and local artists, music, and food trucks. There is parking at the Winn-Dixie parking lot next door, and the gallery is wheelchair accessible. All are invited and welcome to join this celebration of Black Art and Artists living and working in the community. 

The GFAA Gallery is open Tuesday through Friday, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“Black Artists have been historically and continue to be disproportionally represented. Our intention is to make space for Black Artists and their voices through this exhibition. Our goal is to make and strengthen communal connections and to give recognition and exposure to more Black Artists. Our vision is to shape new futures,“ ACCRP & GFAA.
