****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.
