The exhibition, which will run from December 7, 2019 through January 11, 2020, will be showing extraordinary work.

The influence of artists such as Jacob Lawrence and Romare Bearden is clear. This work testifies to Joe Sam.’s belief in the importance of portraying the unique African-American blended culture and of supporting those men and women who have committed their life’s work to doing so. Come experience the richness of the artwork by this renowned African American artist. It really matters.

About the Artist
Born in Harlem, Joe Sam. was influenced by his early experiences and later by artists such as Jacob Lawrence and Romare Bearden. During his many years living and working in the San Francisco area, Joe Sam. earned an international reputation as not only a prolific fine artist, but also a public artist and an award-winning illustrator of children’s books. A number of years ago, while maintaining his west coast studio, he returned to the east coast to create an additional studio closer to his children. He also wanted to focus primarily on further developing his fine art.
Truly a bridge-builder at heart, Joe Sam. passionately testifies in his art to the validity and importance of portraying the cultures of African Americans and all under-represented peoples.

Joe Sam. has a considerable following of collectors and contemporaries that he has known socially and professionally. He counts among them, Danny Glover, Leroy Lendo, Nancy and Paul Pelosi, Bobby McFerrin, Betye Saar, Faith Ringgold, Raymond Saunders, Romare Bearden, Kehinde Wiley, and many other notables in art and jazz.
