Fine Art Show
Streaming Live daily from September 2-6 2021 on all multiple social media sites
The Beauty of Blackness Fine Art Show will host a free online festival Sept. 2-5 2021 that will feature several nationally renowned Black and African-American artists who will participate in studio tours, talks and Q&A sessions that will stream on various social media platforms. There will also be music and the chance for participants to purchase an array of the artists’ work.
Much like an art walk, viewers will be able to virtually stroll to a dozen studios throughout the multi-day event. Attendees can watch the streams on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or the show’s website.
Unlike an actual art walk, the beauty of technology allows folks to visit the distinctly creative spaces of artists outside of Colorado.
Artists have Zoom links in place to speak one-on-one with potential patrons during times they are not live on the air. From the news article written by By KALENE MCCORT

Guest Speaker Charly Palmer was born in 1960 in Fayette, Alabama and raised in Milwaukee. He relocated to Chicago to study Art and Design at American Academy of Art and School of the Art Institute. As a graphic designer and illustrator, he has run a successful design studio with a Fortune 500 clientele. As an instructor, he teaches design and illustration and painting at the post-secondary level—most recently—Spelman College. Palmer brings unique style and technique to fine art. He creates visual theatre that gleans from history and life experience. In the recent past, Palmer worked under the pseudonym Carlos—his alter ego. Doing so allowed him to explore and experiment with spontaneity and fluidity. The result is a body of work that is less controlled and more abstract and primal. The fusion of his artistic styles has culminated into the perfect stylistic voice, which is fully expressed in his powerful Civil Rights series. Charly Palmer was selected to do the July 2020 cover for the acclaimed Time Magazine, where he also wrote an article about the piece. Mr. Palmer’s work is in private and public collections that include Atlanta Life Insurance, McDonald’s Corporation, Miller Brewing Company, the Coca Cola Company and Vanderbilt University. His previous work , belonging to the estate of Maya Angelou, was auctioned by Swann Gallery. Palmer’s work has recently been featured on John Legend’s “Bigger Love” album art and on the cover of TIME Magazine. He for the 1996 Olympics and the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau. He was selected to execute original artwork commemorating Fisk University’s 150th year anniversary; he accomplished the same for Howard University.
