Gwen Black, Artist/Curator/Producer
There's much to see. So, take your time, look around & learn all there is to know about my work in the arts. This year I am celebrating 34 years of advocating for visual arts and jazz. Join us for our 19th Anniversary for Arts and Jazzfest NYC(tm) & our recent Jazz By The Water Concert series on Governor's Island(tm)
Throughout my career I have enjoyed creating and sharing art along with helping others discover their own God given talents. Check out my bio and art resume along with my photo gallery. I hope you enjoy my site and for more info please feel free to drop me a line below in the contact form.
