New Lebanon gallery to feature Black artists of Warren County Supported by ArtsWave
A new space in Lebanon has opened to promote the arts in Warren County. Artscape Lebanon, supported by ArtsWave, is a nonprofit whose mission is to unite and empower this small community via the arts. The organization is housed in the Art Depot, adjacent to the railroad
tracks near downtown, and will serve as a hub for art classes, art openings, bands, artist studio spaces and more. And a new art gallery has also opened in the Arts Depot. Kent Savage established the Martha Savage Gallery to honor his late wife’s legacy of encouraging artists. The first show in this new space is “Art in Color – Celebrating Black Artists,” set to open on Juneteenth (June 19). The wide-ranging exhibit features Black artists of Warren County, and is the first in a series dedicated to the diverse cultural backgrounds within this mostly rural part of Ohio.
The show will be presented online and in-person by appointment, and will include work in two and three dimensions, poetry, photography, video and more. ArtScape Lebanon presents the “Art In Color” exhibit in partnership with the MLK Community Coalition of Lebanon.
