The work of local black and Latino artists from two of the region's newer arts organizations will be highlighted during a mixer from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17, at Paint the Town Gallery, 74 Allen St.
The event will feature the work of artists from the Western New York Urban Arts Collective and Los Artistas del Barrio, both of which formed within the past two years. The two organizations provide opportunities for black and Latino artists, offering exposure to regional and national audiences through exhibitions, public performances, and community arts projects. The work exhibited during the mixer will touch on current social issues and environmental or political events, while also celebrating the diversity of local artists.
The event is free and refreshments will be provided.
