ROOTS: A Black Heritage Art Show”

 —  —

Amador County Arts Council , 617 South CA-49 (Mother Lode Plaza), Jackson, CA 95642

During Black History Month, AmadorArts is proud to present “ROOTS: A Black Heritage Art Show”. This landmark exhibit will celebrate the contributions of Black Americans with a presentation of art and artistry by our fellow citizens. The celebration of art and culture in America recognizes the contribution of all our various citizens over the course of our history. Black History Month is an established, nationally recognized observance that honors the lives, experiences, and history of Blacks in America. For almost 50 years, it has reminded us of the extraordinary men and women who achieved incredible things often in the face of unimaginable injustice and inequality. All too often the contributions of Black Americans, as well as those of women and other marginalized groups, have been forgotten or purposely relegated into the obscurity of a lost history amid bigotry and discrimination. Since Africans arrived on the shores of North America some 400 years ago, they have made significant contributions to the American motif in various fields including art, music, science, politics, technology, geographic exploration and industry. Public reception 01/31/2020, free and open from 4-7pm. This reception will include music, snacks, and performance artists

"I Never Feel As Truly Alive As When I Play Music."

For generations, Hohner has dedicated everything towards music for a simple reason: Music is a way of life. In fact, you could say it’s the best way of life. People who aren’t into music simply don’t know what they’re missing. Of course we would say that, wouldn’t we? But like countless musicians all over the world, from beginner to professional, we feel so strongly about music that we want to help open the door to this experience to everyone. With instruments designed to convey the joy and the passion which inspires everybody to improve their skills and develop further.

We wouldn’t be where we are now, as world market leader for harmonicas and accordions, if it wasn’t for our passion and our shared commitment to our craft and the traditions which it has inspired. This is a defining element of the Hohner sound, a key to unlock the world of music. Our mission is to pass this passion on to you, with perfectly crafted instruments which enable you to truly Enjoy music.
