Gallery of African Art

Gallery of African Art African art, masks and sculpture of mainly West African tribes
The Gallery of African Art is an educational museum display of a unique, private collection representative of various regions, tribes and traditions of the African continent. The collection has been assembled by Massachusetts industrialist and avid art collector Gordon B. Lankton.

****FOR INFORMATION ON PREVIOUS PROGRAMMING IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE GALLERY, PLEASE FOLLOW CROCODILE RIVER MUSIC or AFRICAN ARTS IN EDUCATION on Facebook*** The Gallery encompasses a diverse collection of more than 600 + African tribal masks, figures, sculpture and artifacts crafted in stone, wood, clay and bronze, spanning 32 tribes, including Dogon, Baule, and Bamana art. Like African art in general, Lankton’s collection emphasizes the human figure, visual abstraction, sculpture and the representative accouterments of ceremonial performance art. Lankton has been acquiring an eclectic and diverse collection of African tribal masks, figures, Dogon art, sculpture and artifacts crafted in stone, wood, clay and bronze, and has quietly opened the new Gallery of African Art in Clinton’s buzzing commercial and somewhat artsy district on High St. Like something out of Through the Looking Glass, The Gallery is not an easy find. You can walk past the Sunshine Boutique and never appreciate the unique art treasures inside. In a reciprocal venture with shop owner Cynthia Cannon—their goal being to advance the renaissance of downtown Clinton—the Gallery entrance is located at the rear of the gift store.

"Instead of viewing the arts and cultural sector as an economic commodity, it should be thought of and advocated for as a public good benefiting everyone through a ripple effect—extending beyond those who go to cultural events or directly depend on the sector for a job."
