In a multi-media exhibition titled “Black Heritage Through Visual Rhythms,” the work of five African-American artists will be celebrated at Gallery 625 in Woodland.

The group exhibition includes mixed media artwork, photography, abstract oil paintings, bronze sculpture and a musical performance at the exhibition’s opening reception from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7.

In addition to being an artist, Milton Bowens, an Oakland native, is also a sought-after public speaker and community activist.

“My works pair the legacy and importance of maintaining self-esteem for African-Americans while examining the importance of controlling the cultural narrative of one’s own stories and experiences,” Bowens said in his artist statement. “I have diligently and tirelessly created exhibitions that try to bring about a level of civility to a community in need of inspiration.”

Larry Dalton has a 25-year career as a photojournalist at the Sacramento Observer Magazine, focusing on the black community.

Mike Henderson, art professor emeritus at UC Davis, is an accomplished painter and musician. His paintings have been exhibited across the country and, as a successful blues artist, he has performed widely and released several albums. Henderson has taught at UCD since 1970, and is considered a prominent figure among the second generation of Bay Area abstract painters.

Sculptor Corrine Singleton takes inspiration from New Mexico’s northern mountains in the creation of her bronze sculptures.

At 7 p.m., Nathalie Minya will sing a mix of gospel and African songs recounting experiences of her childhood in southern Africa. Her work as a humanitarian, public speaker and singer takes her to schools and events across the country.

The artists’ reception will feature snacks and Yolo County wine poured by a representative of Berryessa Gap winery. Gallery 625 is in the County Administration Building at 625 Court St. in Woodland.

For more information, call YoloArts at 530-406-4844.
