Marvtastic Happenings Downtown

Downtown is abuzz with the “marvtastic” National Black Theatre Festival, and the Associated Artists Gallery at Fourth and Cherry Streets is right in the center of the action!

AAWS is proud to host a special exhibition of photographs from the NBTF. All of the images date from 1989, the first year of this landmark Winston-Salem event. Many of the photos include the festival’s peerless founder, the late Larry Leon Hamlin. Other luminaries pictured include Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Maya Angelou, Lou Gossett Jr., Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee. These photos will be on view through Saturday, August 5.

Also, stop by the gallery to see the remaining demos by AAWS member artist Leo Rucker! He’ll be doing caricatures for a small fee on Wednesday, August 3, 12-6 pm. Then on Thursday, August 4, check out his body painting demo with a bodysuit-clad model, 12-7 pm. Thursday will also feature a reception with music by Shakara Byrd, 5-7 pm.
