HARLEM, NY – (January 10, 2019) Excitement is building up, as opening night of the Harlem Fine Arts Show (HFAS) grows near. HFAS returns to the historic Riverside Church, 91 Claremont Avenue, New York, NY on Thursday, February 14th through Sunday, February 17th, 2019 for their coveted four-day exhibition and sale, youth empowerment programs and nightly VIP receptions. HFAS is proud to continue their special partnership with The Riverside Church and the fine artists that make up HFAS, during Black History Month.
The Harlem Fine Arts Show was created in 2009 to showcase artists and galleries of the African Diaspora. Its roots reach back to the Harlem Renaissance, the cultural movement in the 1920s that nurtured an unprecedented flowering of artistic talent in the visual and performing arts, poetry, and fashion. The four-day traveling exhibition and sale of contemporary paintings, sculpture and photography is the largest of its kind featuring art from the African Diaspora, in addition to art related programs.
This year’s annual HFAS will showcase and salute African Americans in Technology on Opening Night, in addition to raising awareness about technology as a career choice for young people. The Harlem Fine Arts Show is a celebration of African-American artistic history, in the vein of masters including Palmer C. Hayden, Augusta Savage, Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, Jacob Lawrence, and Ernie Barnes. The HFAS will showcase over 40 national and international artists and galleries offering investment-level art at multiple price points.
HFAS serves to find, nurture, and highlight artistic talent. HFAS has provided a new generation of art collectors and those with a general interest in increasing their appreciation for art with exposure to the artwork of masters. Additionally HFAS has served as the vehicle for celebrating contemporary artists like Mickalene Thomas, Kehinde Wiley and Leroy Campbell. The HFAS art will come alive in the exhibit galleries and through its exhibitions and events, revealing both new ideas and unexpected connections across time and cultures. HFAS is able to show all the different cultures and mediums of Fine art and bring Fine Art to the entire family. The HFAS visitors will discover new ideas and unexpected connections through art.
