Black Art: an International Quarterly, Vol. 2 No. 1 (1977)


Published in 1977, this 68–page volume of the Hampton University Museum’s Black Art: an International Quarterly (predecessor to The International Review of African American Art) is dedicated to artists Charles White, Alvin C. Hollingsworth, and Ruth Lucetty Bell. In addition, the accomplishments of art commissioner Evangeline J. Montgomery, the artist in the marketplace, and the convergence of African American art and Social Realist art are discussed in this issue. Black heritage in theatre and performing arts, including a special review of Theodore Ward’s drama “Our Lan’” and its enduring legacy in several colleges across the U.S., is also covered. Finally, this issue offers reviews of exhibitions of works by Richard Yarde and Alvin C. Hollingsworth, and news of the development of the Professional Artist Employment Program at Brockman Gallery productions with the California Confederation of the Arts.  Included in this issue are many color and black & white photographs of artists’ works, and very insightful commentaries by highly respected art reviewers.
