THE LONG ISLAND BLACK ARTIST ASSOCIATION was founded in 1968 by a small group of artists namely, James Counts and Ernest Snell, Raymond Miles, and Charles Winslow. The purpose of the association is to help African-American artist find a conduit for the exhibition of their work. To that end it has continually sought new venues for exhibiting the work of its' members locally, nationally and internationally and has also encouraged the artist's individual efforts to find recognition.
The Association is the only such supportive group in the Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk . Through out the years the association has exhibited in many museums, galleries, colleges, universities, libraries, churches, and corporations through out the country. Works by individuals are in collections in the U.S.A., Canada, the Caribbean, Africa and Europe. The group is open to anyone who expresses an interest in joining.
