Celebrating the 15th anniversary of the only annual non-juried exhibition and self-guided art tour in the Bay Area to exclusively feature regional artists of African descent. Featuring over 75 local artists. Curated by Hershell West.

The Richmond Art Center is proud to present The Art of Living Black 15th Anniversary Exhibition. Works include fine arts and crafts, paintings, sculpture, photography, prints, masks, stained glass, quilts, textile art, ceramics, jewelry and dolls.

A number of satellite shows at various locations throughout the Bay Area accompany this exhibition. The exhibitions culminate with a self-guided art tour giving the public an opportunity to meet the artists, learn about their creative processes and purchase art directly from them.

The Art of Living Black was co-founded in 1997 by the late artists Rae Louise Hayward and Jan Hart Schuyers and continues to honor their vision to this day. Other artists involved were April Watkins, painter and owner of The Art of Living Center in Berkeley and Hershell West, a muralist and currently the chair of the Board at the Richmond Art Center.
