Southwest Black Art Show

April 20, 2024 - 11am - 7pm | April 21, 2024 - 11am - 5pm

The Southwest Black Art Show was envisioned to present a quality experience for artists, collectors, galleries, educators, art professionals, and anyone interested in black fine art. The Southwest Black Art Show is committed to the exclusive presentation of art produced by artists of African and African-American descent. Our goal is to make the SWBAS a destination point where collectors come to find quality black art.
The Southwest Black Art Show will also present a series of workshops for those interested in becoming collectors, but may not know exactly what to look for when viewing a work of art. The Show will feature presentations by seasoned collectors, scholars and gallery owners. In addition, there will be hands-on activities for families and children throughout the weekend.
