ArtCrawl Harlem is pleased to announce Fire & Soul 2022: “We’re Still Harlem” Art Exhibit, at Heath Gallery, New York from March 12 – April 2, 2022.
Harlem’s vibrant history and influence stretches far beyond the five boroughs.

Our Fire & Soul 2022 exhibition exemplifies this very statement. The exhibit features 10 multi-generational artists whose work embodies the notions of beauty, joy, and connection. Let this exhibit provide you strength, optimism, connection, and hope during these remarkably challenging times wherever you find yourself.

The roster of featured artists includes Bianca Allen, Jazzmine Bustamante, Jonte Drew, Yvonne Lamar-Rogers, Demarcus McGaughey, Kenwyn Murray, MarkAnthony McLeod, Erica Morales, Cj Priester, and Heather Williams.
