OSilas Gallery at Concordia College New York is pleased to announce Young, Gifted, and Black: The Lumpkin-Boccuzzi Family Collection of Contemporary Art, curated by Antwaun Sargent and Matt Wycoff and on view September 24 through December 7. This exhibition of African American art is drawn exclusively from the highly regarded private collection of Bernard I. Lumpkin and Carmine D. Boccuzzi. An opening reception featuring remarks by Mr. Lumpkin will be held on Tuesday, September 24 at 7 pm

Although many works in the Lumpkin-Boccuzzi Family Collection have been lent to museums over the years, Young, Gifted, and Black is the first stand-alone public exhibition curated from this exceptional collection.  Young, Gifted, and Black showcases works, in a variety of mediums, by emerging African American artists, alongside works by established artists who have paved the way for the younger generation.
