MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- Mount Vernon art gallery identical twin-sister owners Sharon Mackey-McGee and Karen Mackey Witherspoon have been named “914INC Women in Business” awardees.

Their Mackey Twins Art Gallery in Mount Vernon sells exclusive works of artists of color in the tristate area.

The women are one among 18 winners profiled in the 914INC magazine’s fourth-quarter issue.

The tribute comes as the gallery owners just opened a new exhibition, “Art’s Conscience II."

The exhibition, which runs until Wednesday, features the works of Xenobia Bailey, Betty Blayton, Stacey Brown, Leroy Campbell, Demetric Denmark, James Denmark, Essud Fungcap, Magno Laracuente, Ruth Miller and Charly Palmer.

“Winning an award for doing what you love is incredibly fortunate,” said Witherspoon. “We thank 914INC for this incredible honor.”

In April 2013, the gallery presented “Art’s Conscience” at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.

The current exhibition, open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays at the Interchurch Center Gallery (475 Riverside Drive at 120th Street, New York, NY 10115), expands upon that theme.
