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. 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. The Gallery is located in Clinton's buzzing commercial district on High Street. Because there is very limited staffing at the Gallery, for now it is accessible via the Sunrise Boutique at 62 High Street. Donations are encouraged. Currently there are no admission fees. The Gallery is pleased to announce the appointment of Zachariah Combs as Director effective July 1, 2013. Mr. Combs has had a history with the Gallery since it's expansion in 2011, offering tours of the collection, music and drumming lessons and sharing his expertise on the art and culture of Africa.
