About Point Comfort Art Fair + Show 2023

About Hampton Art Lovers: Hampton Art Lovers’ mission is to accentuate African-American Fine Art’s inspirational, unifying, and enriching aspects in new and old settings. They are passionate supporters of Hampton University’s long-standing commitment to African-American art, the Hampton University Museum Collection, and the International Review of African Americans.

The International Review of African American Art (IRAAA) is its primary print publication and a global resource for best-in-class Black and African-American art. IRAAA was first published in 1976 as Black Art: An International Quarterly. The quarterly art journal was published by artist and educator Dr. Samella Lewis and two associates to cover the visual expression of black people in the United States and Africa. In 1984, Black Art became the International Review of African American Art (IRAAA), as the publication was broadening its focus to include the visual art of African-descended people throughout the Americas. In 1992, the operations of the IRAAA were transferred to Hampton University, Samella Lewis’ undergraduate alma mater.

Hampton Art Lovers believes in the power of culture and education to improve communities, universities, and the world. They advocate for Black arts by creating a collective of supporters committed to sharing the work of artists whose creativity and self-expression inspire the community.
