African Art from the AC Gallery

Paintings, Drawings, & Prints

From its earliest rock paintings and engravings to today's flamboyant oils, watercolors, and collages, Africa has managed to produce two-dimensional art that has had a profound influence on the art we see today. Our Paintings, Drawings, and Prints Gallery strives to bring you fine and unique examples of two-dimensional arts produced by contemporary artists. Look for its opening in Spring of 2002.
