NEW YORK, NY.- The Harlem Fine Arts Show (HFAS), premier showcase of emerging and celebrated artists of the Black Diaspora, returns to Riverside Church from February 7 – 10, 2013, with a salute to the late Honorable Percy E. Sutton, one of Harlem’s most prominent political, civil rights, and business leaders. This year, HFAS expands to a four-day exposition and will include a series of events and activities. All of the events will take place at Riverside Church, 91 Claremont Avenue (between 121st and 122nd Streets) in Harlem.

“HFAS is proud to salute the life and legacy of Percy E. Sutton, an avid collector and patron of the arts, as we celebrate the rich cultural and artistic legacy of artists of African and Caribbean heritage,” says Dion Clarke, HFAS founder. “Since the launch of the Harlem Fine Arts Show in 2009, we have welcomed more than 30,000 visitors who have viewed and appreciated the works of numerous inspiring artists”, continues Clarke.

"Most people remember my grandfather for his business acumen, his brilliant political achievements and his legendary work as a civil rights activist, but he was also a man of great passion for the performing and visual arts,” said Keisha Sutton-James, chairperson of the HFAS Salute to Percy Sutton.

Past notable guests who have visited HFAS include Oprah Winfrey, Gayle King and Spike Lee. Among the impressive roster of artists are: Dane Tilghman, whose paintings have appeared on TV shows such as “The Cosby Show” and “Roseanne,” and have been presented to notables including Ozzie Davis, Nelson Mandela and Bill Cosby; George Nock, distinguished sculptor and former running back for the New York Jets and Washington Redskins; Margerine Gordon, an innovative textile artist who uses recycled fabric to create “Pictorial Quilts”; Michael Escoffery, a Jamaican-born visual artist whose work has been published in over 70 books worldwide and in 9 languages; and Woodrow Nash, a prolific ceramic sculptor whose work reflects a marriage of 15th Century Benin and 18th Century French Nouveau, creating what he has coined "African Nouveau".

Tickets to the event cost $20 each day for four days or $50 for a weekend pass. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit or call (914) 980-4427.
