Visit the Beaverbrook Art Gallery as they present a special speaker series for the entire month of February, Expressions in Excellence: Voices from Black Artists.

This speaker series takes place every Thursday evening at 6:30 in February and will shine a spotlight on the immense talent and cultural richness of Black artists in our community. This series serves not only as a platform for artistic expression but also as a catalyst for dialogue, understanding, and unity.

The series provides a unique opportunity to amplify the voices of Black artists who have historically been marginalized in the art world. It offers a platform for their stories, experiences, and artistic perspectives to be heard and appreciated.
