Hearne Fine Art, which will be open from 5-8 p.m. tonight for 2nd Friday Art Night, is exhibiting work by artists contemporary and 19th century, self-taught and professional, nationally known and locally known as part of educational exhibit about art acquisition.

"The Power of Art: Establishing Generational Wealth" examines art as investment and features work by Benny Andrews, Edward Bannister, Ernie Barnes, Richmond Barthe, Dr. John Biggers, Elizabeth Catlett, Robert Duncanson, Paul Goodnight, Jonathan Green, Latoya Hobbs, George Hunt, Richard Hunt, Clementine Hunter, Dean Mitchell, CE Porter, Henry Ossawa Tanner, TWIN and Ernest Withers.
A press release on the show says:

Many circumstances have led to the collection of work in this show. However, the value remains consistent as the gallery setting provides the most appropriate venue for the preservation and sale of art.

Hearne has a "matinee" reception from 1-3 p.m. for folks who like to do things early.
