Peekskill, NY – The HRHCare Jeannette J. Phillips Health Center has partnered with the Peekskill Arts Alliance to present a group exhibition featuring the work of Peekskill-area African-American artists in commemoration of Black History Month. The exhibition will run from February 3rd to 28th, with an opening reception at the Jeannette J. Phillips Health Center on Saturday the 3rd from 2 to 4 pm. In conjunction with the reception, HRHCare will host a series of free health screenings for Heart Health Month on February 3rd.
The exhibition will feature the work of ten African-American artists: Lance Johnson, Toni Quest, Ocean Morisset, Jennifer Phillips, Lavinia Wiggins, Barry Mason, James Brooks, Bria Waterman, Evans Bishop, and the Late Charles McGill. The opening reception will also feature a program highlighting performances from jazz musicians Ray Blue, Kazi Oliver, Vanessa Johnson, and poet Kahlil Koromantee. This event, the first of its kind in Peekskill, will be a celebration of black art and culture, drawing inspiration from artists of the Harlem Renaissance and beyond.
