Bridge Storage Arts & Events will play host in February to one of numerous satellite exhibitions of the Richmond Art Center’s annual “Art of the African Diaspora,” now in its 27th year.

An reception for the exhibition will be held indoors at Bridge Saturday, Feb. 10 from 1-4 p.m. that will include a meet and greet with the featured artists, as well as a Q&A. Complimentary refreshments and a cash bar will be on hand.

Bridge’s satellite exhibition will be viewable until March 29. It will feature visual art from artists from Richmond and throughout the East Bay, and will explore “the various forms of artistic expression that have emerged from the cultural experiences of African descendants around the world,” according to organizers.  

Artists featured in the satellite exhibition will include Louise, Xioneida Ruiz, Kevin Myrick, Julie Atkinson and Kimberly Antoinette.

As part of the greater exhibition, 150 artists are showcasing their work at Richmond Art Center, as well as at other satellite exhibitions at Bay Area venues.
