The Black Woman is Art at City Hall Link Gallery

Zharriay Callier

“The Black Woman is Art,” an exhibit curated by local creative Zharriay Callier and Rochester photographer Erica Jae, is on display at the City Hall Link Gallery, 30 Church St., now through Friday, April 19.


“The Black Woman is Art” explores the untold stories of several Black women, from their trials and tribulations to their victories and successes. According to the curators, the exhibit offers the audience an exploration of “self-discovery, sisterhood, and partnership” through a series portraying “Black women reclaiming their power in a world that often attempts to dim their light.”


“We believe the Black woman possesses a pristine intuition, an infinite capacity for unconditional love, and the power to birth a new Earth of peaceful life,” said Zharriay.


“Thank you to the City of Rochester for the opportunity to display in the Link Gallery and providing us with the space to bring Rochester’s artists together,” said Erica Jae.


An opening reception and artist celebration took place, 5:30 p.m., March 7 at City Hall.
