The seventy works in this exhibition date from the late 1800s to 2002 and represent just a fraction of what is contained in the Harmon and Harriet Kelley Collection of San Antonio, TX, one of the country’s major collections of African American art. Esteemed art historian, David Driskell, Professor Emeritus at the University of Maryland at College Park, calls the Kelley Collection “one of the finest that has been assembled tracing the history of African American art.”

The exhibition has been presented at the Amon Carter Museum, Ft. Worth, TX; the McNay Art Museum, San Antonio, TX; the Krasl Art Center, St. Joseph; and the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, PA, among others.

Included in the exhibition are drawings, etchings, lithographs, watercolors, pastels, acrylics, gouaches, linoleum and color screen prints by such noted artists as Ron Adams, Benny Andrews, Romare Bearden, Aaron Douglas, Jacob Lawrence, Charles White, Elizabeth Catlett, John Biggers, Henry Ossawa Tanner, Eldizer Cortor, Margaret Burroughs, and many other outstanding lesser known artists.

Dr. Regenia Perry, Ph.D., Professor Emerita of African and African American Art, Virginia Commomwealth University, art historian, collector and curator, contributes an introduction to the exhibition and to the Kelleys as collectors.
