Black History Month Art Show

Posted Feb 10th, 2009 by Rhonda B. Sewell  Category: Arts & Entertainment, Toledo.com


In observance of Black History Month, The Art Tatum African American Resource Center Gallery proudly presents “Gifts of an Artist,” the artwork of Willie Nell Shahraki-Heard.
This collection of 11 original paintings will be on view in the Tatum Center Gallery now through February 25, located at Kent Branch Library, 3101 Collingwood Blvd.

Heard is a local author and artist and has lived in the Toledo area since 1968.  Her passion is captured in the beauty of her oil paintings.  Heard said she especially likes to feature historical images in her art that are reflections of her southern roots in Greensboro, AL.

This exhibit is co-sponsored by Diane Gordon, of the Toledo Kwanzaa House and The Art Tatum African American Resource Center at Kent Branch Library.
