The Richmond Art Center celebrated the 15th Anniversary of The Art of Living Black with an artist’s reception on Feb 5, 2011.

The Art of Living Black is the only annual non-juried exhibition in the Bay Area to feature over 75 artists of regional artists of African descent. Their works include fine arts, crafts, paintings, sculpture, photography, prints, masks, textile art, ceramics, and jewelry.

This year artists and founders of The Art of Living Black, Rae Louise Hayward and Jan Hart Schuyers were honored. In 1997, Rae Louise Hayward and Jan Hart Schuyers founded The Art of Living Black. Sadly, these two passionate leaders passed away — Hart Schuyers in 1998 and Hayward in 2008.

The exhibit featured the art of Mills’ Professor, Ajuan Mance. Mance has a satellite show at Mills College on Saturday and Sunday, February 26 and 27, 2011 featuring artwork from The Art of Living Black.
