The Third Annual Presentation of
January 29 - January 31, 1999

New York-After two years of rave reviews and international acclaim, The National Black Fine Art Show is returning this January to once again recognize and celebrate the richness, historic significance and cultural contributions of works by Black artists from around the world.

Produced by Wainwright/Smith Associates, The National Black Fine Art Show offers a unique and comprehensive collection of works unlike anything that has ever been assembled before. Forty of the finest dealers of traditional African, Caribbean and African-American art will feature paintings, sculpture, prints, photography and fabric art by Black artists. Innovative work by today's young cutting-edge artists will be represented, as will historically important older works. This exhibition offers some of the best values in art world investments today.

The Third Annual National Black Fine Art Show will be held January 29 through January 31, 1999 at the Puck Building on Houston and Lafayette Streets in SoHo, NewYork City.

Hours are Friday, noon to 8pm; Saturday, 11am to 5pm; and Sunday, 11am to 6pm. Admission is $12, a three-day pass is S25; children under 16 are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.

A gala preview will be held on January 28, 1999 from 6pm to 9pm. Preview tickets are $50, which includes a catalog and one readmission. For reservations or more information call 212-777-5218.

Among the prominent dealers exhibiting at The National Black Fine Art Show will be: Mert Simpson (NYC); Essie Green Gallery (NYC); George NNamdi (Detroit & Chicago); ACA (NYC); Bourbon-Lally (Haiti);Thonsas Erben Gallery (NYC); Sepia Gallery (Quebec, Canada); 70th Art Gallery/Jan Harrison (NYC).

While African Americans and other Blacks have long been recognized as having fundamentally shaped the performing arts in this country, their contributions to the fine arts have often been overlooked. Until a recent burgeoning of interest, driven in large part by The National Black Fine Art Show, much of this work had gone unrecognized and underappreciated.

According to Stedman Graham, president of Stedman Graham & Partners, "Based on the last two spectacular successes, are especially pleased to once again sponsor this historical enterprise with Wainwright/Smith Associates. The real value of this program is its ability to communicate-to the largest possible public-the particular experience of these Black artists in terms of their own lives and their communities. The National Black Fine Art Show will be a major bridge towards educating both the art collector and the general public about this wonderfully rich visual art." Stedman Graham & Partners is a marketing company that works with corporate marketers and the African-American community, and is helping to develop programs that understand, respect and celebrate African-American culture.

A lecture and discussion on Black art will be held on Saturday, January 30th, 1999. For more information, call 301-564-6602.
