ROYALTY now on display in the
The Boundaries of the African Diaspora Art Exhibit at the University of Washington School of Social Work

September 25 - December 23, 2015


Puget Sound artists on the African diaspora now on exhibit

September 25, 2015

The UW School of Social Work Art Committee, in partnership with Seattle's C Art Gallery, is presenting a vibrant exhibit illustrating how Africa has challenged, enhanced and influenced Puget Sound artists through the continent’s color, patterns, imagery and subject matter. Africa provides a subtle influence and, at times, significant impact on the communities where we live. This is evident in the news we read, in our local economies, and in our reflections on our diverse neighborhoods. This influence also shapes the works of local artists featured in this exhibit.

This exhibit—now on display through Dec. 23 in the School of Social Work first floor gallery—is curated by C Art Gallery and reflects its mission to present and to promote artists of different cultural backgrounds to encourage acceptance and appreciation of cultural differences.

An artists’ reception is open to the public on Thursday, Nov. 5, 4:30 – 7:30 p.m.
