“We are pushing the envelope in support of African Diasporan artists during these challenging times when they are not able to be in front of collectors, said Dion Clarke, founder of the Harlem Fine Arts Show (HFAS). “In our current climate, where awareness of the Black aesthetic is top of mind across the globe, it is imperative for us to reinvent the way we engage with multi-cultural artists utilizing today’s technology.”

Featured artists this year include Ademola Olugebefola, Roederick Vines, John Pinderhughes, Danny Simmons, Frank Frazier, and more.

As the largest traveling African Diaspora art show in the United States, HFAS was inspired by the Harlem Renaissance and serves as a platform for Black visual artists to exhibit and sell their artwork. First held in February 2010 in New York City, the Harlem Fine Arts Show has attracted more than 80,000 visitors to venues, including Martha’s Vineyard, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Chicago, White Plains, NY, and New York City.
