FOUR WOMEN.
Curated by Peter Woods.

A Modern Look at Black Women Artists in 4 Chapters.

Four Women is an art exhibit that is part of Black History Month micro-festival, BLK SOL. BLK SOL is produced by The Accomplices, in conjunction with Civic Center Studios, Air 11 Gallery and Avenue 50 Studio. BLK SOL events are:
