Marshall III, Mansa K. Mussa, and Union resident Stephen B. Ellis will discuss their work.
“This Music We Call Jazz: Giant Steps,” features collages, paintings and photographs and will be on display at the Les Malamut Gallery, Union Public Library through Saturday, April 28.

“All of the artists had such a great time at the opening reception last month, and the response from the public was so positive, that we decided to organize ‘A Conversation with the Artists’,” said exhibit organizer Mansa K. Mussa. “This time each artist will share some of their work in different fields of photography and art outside of the jazz idiom. Our friends and the gallery’s patrons will also have the opportunity to create an exchange with the artists in a question and answer session.”
The panel discussion begins at 2 p.m. and kicks off with a performance by guest vocalist, Kenneth J. Carter. Admission is free of charge, light refreshments will be served, and on-site parking is available. The artwork is available for purchase.
This event is part of the continuing series of gallery talks free to the public to introduce the artists and their works. It will be held in the gallery itself, so attendees will also have the opportunity to view the current exhibit.
