Black artist exhibit opens at Albany Museum

May 25, 2004

Albany- The Tubman Museum in Macon celebrates African-American art history and culture.

Now you can see some of the museum's pieces at the Albany Museum of Art. The exhibit opens to the public on Thursday. There are almost 50 works featuring paintings, drawings and sculptures from black artist from Georgia, including Albany native Wadsworth Jarrell.

All of the works are displayed regularly at the Tubman Museum.

"It's a tremendous resource that people here in Southwest Georgia may not even know exist," said Aaron Berger with the Albany Museum of Art. "So this is just a chance to have a snippet out of their collection, which is 6,000 pieces deep."

The opening reception will be Thursday at 7 p.m. There's a $5 suggested donation for non-members.
