MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- The Mackey Twins Art Gallery in Mount Vernon will present "The Legacy Continues: New Works, New Mediums," the artwork of James Denmark in celebration of the artist turning 80 April 9 and 10.

The gallery is the largest collection of exclusive works of artists of color in the tristate area, according to a release.

Heavily influenced by Jackson Pollock, Clyfford Still, Jacob Lawrence, Norman Lewis and Romare Bearden, Denmark is best known for his vibrant collage work and watercolors capturing Black life in America, however, he has created exclusive pastel watercolors, woodcuts and collages for this show.

Denmark has had more than 60 one-man shows and his work is found in collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and private and corporate collections across North America, Europe and Africa.

The show will include 60 works by the artist for sale at the show.

The Mackey Twins Art Gallery was founded in 2004 by Karen and Sharon Mackey, identical twin sisters, with the mission of cultivating communities of art collectors and saturating homes and businesses with fine art.

The exhibition runs from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. each day with live jazz, wine and hors d'oeuvres, and it will include an artist’s talk by Denmark at 4 p.m. Saturday and discussions with the artist throughout the weekend.

The gallery is located at 457 E. Sidney Ave., Mount Vernon, N.Y.
