‘Celebrating The Black Experience’

KCAAH’s call for art inspired by the Black experience resulted in works as varied as the artists themselves and the media they used. The exhibition consists of 35 works by 22 people selected by local artists Elmer Lucille Allen, C.J. Fletcher, Gwendolyn Kelly and Nathaniel Spencer. It features local, national and international artists, including a number from Trinidad and Tobago. The show runs through Juneteenth with plans for it to be an annual event.
