Northwest African-American Fine Arts Association August 9 - September 4, 2008
Welcome to the 4th annual Northwest African American Group Art Exhibition. This year’s event will feature more than 40 works reflecting the ingenuity and brilliance of Northwest Artists of African descent.

The Northwest African-American Fine Arts Association was organized in 2005 by Robert Horton and Annie Hudson-McKnight. Horton and Hudson-McKnight were intent on showcasing the work of contemporary African American artists in the Pacific Northwest. An important goal of the organization is to foster a sense of pride and develop an atmosphere of support and professionalism within the membership. The annual NAAFA exhibit displays works of vibrant creativity and style. NAAFA is committed to hosting events that demonstrate the range of artistic talent in Seattle's African American community.

Previous show viewers have commented:

"Beautiful, diverse collection of work and artists...a must see in my book."
"Powerful, a fabulous collection of artists...I look forward to more."
And, "Such a thrill to have seen the show."
