The August installment at the Black Wall Street Gallery, a subsidiary of Black Wall Street Arts, which opens Friday, Aug 2, features Tulsa artists Melody Allen and Julianne Clark. 

Doors open at 6 p.m. for the 11th installment  in the Conciliation Series at the Black Wall Street Gallery, 101 N. Greenwood Ave.??The Black Wall Street Arts mission is to create platforms, grant access, and bridge the racial gap in Tulsa.?

 

The Conciliaton Series is Black Wall Street Arts’ first exhibiton and will be followed by The Healing Series featuring artists from Oklahoma and neighboring states. The Healing Series will open Oct. 4. The Conciliation Series will conclude in September with an installment featuring many of the artists who showed their work at the gallery in the last year. 

 

Artistic director Dr. Ricco Wright said “conciliation” suggests mediating between parties at odds with one another. It also allows space for acknowledgment, apology, and reparation. 

“The Conciliation Series seeks to generate positive relations between, primarily, Tulsa’s black and white communities. Our shared history evidences the imperative of working collaboratively toward amicable, productive, and sustainable engagement,” he said. 

This twelve-month series will pair black and white artists of various media to build personal and group relationships that cultivate meaningful, lasting bonds.
