Dane Tilghman to talk about his Art of the African-American experience
Dane Tilghman, a premier African-American Painter, who paints about sports, jazz and the African-American experience, will talk about his art and what it took to be a success in the art world. Dane will be sharing some anecdotes about the ups and downs in his journey in art.
Pottstown Area Artists Guild is sponsoring this talk. It will be held on Tuesday, September 18th, from 7 to 9 PM in the Boyer Gallery at The Hill School Center For The Arts at 760 Beech Street near the intersection of Beech and Sheridan Streets in Pottstown, PA. This event is free and open to the public.
Dane is constantly taking his artwork towards new dimensions; he has gone from realism to incorporating his own interpretations of surrealism and elongation. Over the years, Dane has established himself as one of the premier painters of African American Golf Art and Negro League Baseball images. In 1999, one of Dane's paintings of baseball was incorporated into the Baseball Hall of Fame Museum in Cooperstown. In 1989 and 1995, Dane's art was included in an exhibition at the Afro-American Historical and Cultural Museum in Philadelphia. Dane's philosophy is best described as bringing out the best of the African American Experience/
