Gallery Opening Reception: Black Joy Is

Friday, January 27 - 5:00 PM

This collection of works by female African-American artists examines what “Black Joy Is” means to each participant. A wide variety of media will be presented including fiber, paintings, prints and installations. Curator Veronica Jackson will lead visitors to the exhibition through a “walk and talk” at 6 p.m. Jackson is an architect and exhibit designer who has turned her attention to visual arts. She creates text-based work that is autobiographical and critically visualizes gender and race in America. The exhibition will show through March 25, 2023.


Entry to the PVCC Gallery is free. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m.; and during Fine Arts and Performance evening events in the V. Earl Dickinson Building.
