Richard Beavers Gallery Presents “Working Together” By Leroy Campbell

Vegas- In a world that has vivid tensions between skin complexions and recognizing the art of African American Culture, Leroy Campbell has shown the world that he can capture the essence of black beauty.

Campbell is an artist that has pushed the boundaries of creativity with paintings that tells the story of an exquisite style of the African American community. “During a time of political chaos and propaganda, art is the loud voice of many frustrated and marginalized people of color in communities from coast to coast from Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn to Oakland, California.”

“Rather than channeling energy into the negative aspects of society, the purpose of this exhibit is to remind the Black community of our strong, historic roots of working together as a collective ecosystem and uplifting each other on all levels from family to an enterprise.”

Campbell had some challenges that he had to face and overcame it. He was born with missing fingers and toes due to a complication with a type of medicine that was unethically tested on women in the 1950’s, but he did not let that stop him from bridging imagery and messages together. Each of his pieces has an inviting and empowering message that a lot of the black culture can relate to.

“Working together in the Black community has been second nature for me. I have been doing it all my life. I will not give racism nor segregation the credit for that. The love, laughter, extended families, food, rhythms, music, beauty, spirit, and economic support have been life-sustaining for me. I need the Black community to thrive so that I may continue to thrive. I am encouraged when I see Black people do well. I take the Black community with me all over the World. It makes it easy for me to walk freely and with purpose. This ongoing body of work has been created to encourage Black people to take advantage of personal growth and self-empowering benefits they can receive when working together in the Black community. I love being Black, I just hate what happens to us,” said Campbell.
The Richard Beavers Gallery welcomes the support of the “entire” community as it unveils the highly anticipated exhibit, “Working Together,” which features 15 new original works by Leroy Campbell.
The exhibit will start November 17, 2018, and will end Jan. 5, 2019 and for additional information will be added at http://richardbeaversgallery.com/
