It was an honor and a pleasure to be a part of the Grand Re-opening of Mahogany Gallery & Artspace by Scott Terry on 9/12/20. The vibes were high at this delightful evening. Mahogany Gallery & Artspace by Scott Terry is the first Black-owned Art Gallery in Racine. Owner, Scott Terry started off with an official ribbon cutting ceremony and gave the crowd a warm welcome. Friends, family and community came from all around to join him on this historic occasion. In addition to exhibiting Black artists, he mentioned the space would be used for art education/instruction for all ages, book clubs, spoken word and poetry nights. The opening art exhibit is called, "Supreme Tones" and features Racine native Rosy Petri, a fabric artist who is one of the winners of the 2020 Artist of the year in the city of Milwaukee. AfriWare Books, Gifts & Cultural Events partnered with Mahogany Gallery & Artspace by Scott Terry to curate the book collection in the space. Mr. Terry received the "Heart of the Artist" Appreciation Award from the Racine Arts Council for the work he did with the mural for Racine Black Humanity Now Project. A true force in the community. We join the community in supporting this important resource!
