The Gallery of African Art is primarily a museum with an educational display of a unique, private collection representative of various regions, tribes and traditions of the African continent. 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, Lanktons collection emphasizes the human figure, visual abstraction, sculpture and the representative accouterments of ceremonial performance art.
For now, access to the Gallery is located at the back of the Sunrise Boutique located in Clinton's buzzing commercial district at 62 High St.
