The Harlem Fine Arts Show Comes to White Plains

The City of White Plains Youth Bureau, the Westchester Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and the White Plains Public Library are pleased to present the third Annual Harlem Fine Arts Show, the premier showcase for modern and contemporary African Diasporic art, on Thursday, February 27th, 6:00 p.m, at the Library.

The recent Harlem Arts Show at Riverside Church in New York City attracted more than 100 Artists and 10,000 people. According to Youth Bureau Director Frank Williams, “it is our hope that the White Plains Harlem Fine Arts Show will become as successful and important to White Plains as the Harlem Fine Arts Show is to New York City.”

This year's theme is “Artists and Authors” and attendees will have an opportunity to view and purchase works by youth and professional artists and renowned authors Sarah Bracey White (Primary Lessons), Flo Anthony (Deadly Stuff Players), Karl Allen Griggs (Shattered Mirrors) and Whitney Smith (Whits Notes – A Cheat Sheet For The College Journey).

In addition to featuring artists and authors we will pay tribute to one of Westchester’s power couples, Mr. James W. Cobb and Dr. Mary Lane Cobb. Married for 54 years, the Cobb’s are role models for activism, grace, charm and enduring love. As a couple they have served Westchester County through philanthropy and steadfast volunteerism.
