Welcome to CALABAR GALLERY. We showcase contemporary African Artists and African Diaspora artists globally. Based in Harlem, work featured is inspired and influenced by black African culture globally with a focus on dynamic ideas about art and society. In the last year, if you have purchased work from us, as curator and founder, I personally thank you as the business of art and galleries like everything else has been challenging.
Please visit our gallery site for our Art Sale, we have added new work and over the next few weeks, we will add sections on: Art Fairs, Prints, and New Projects: 2 Apps we are developing, one on Auctions and the other on Harlem Murals.
We are excited and amazed about:
