Earliest Known Portrait of an African-American Slave Comes to Yorktown

“The portrait depicts Ayuba Suleiman Diallo, an educated African from a prominent family of Muslim clerics who was kidnapped on the Gambia River in 1731 and sold into slavery in colonial Maryland. Two years later, Diallo was freed, thanks to his future biographer Thomas Bluett, and journeyed to England.”

Rare oil painting by William Hoare (circa 1733) acquired by Virginia's Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation is the earliest depiction of an African-American slave.

Are you ready for some good news?? The wonderful folks at The Compound Gallery have facilitated an incredible donation to the Friends of the Golden Gate Branch Library, from printmaker extraordinaire Kennedy Prints. A serious library lover, Mr. Kennedy dedicated a generous portion of sales from his recent exhibition at The Compound Gallery to their local library - which is us! A million thanks to both Amos Kennedy and Matt & Lena from The Compound Gallery for their kindness. We can't wait to reopen and plan fun programs for our patrons again!!

Hi, I am a local Bay Area Ceramic Artist from the East Bay. I am also a huge die hard Oakland A's fan and was inspired by the teams historical legacy to create this one of a kind, hand crafted and painted, fan made Oakland A's 1:1 full size ceramic baseball player bust sculpture, constructed entirely out of 100% Ceramic Clay. This sculpture has been fired, glazed, then hand painted over in various enamels, to give it a natural distressed appearance. This sculpture makes an excellent art display piece for the extremely serious die hard A's fan or art collector, as it is the only one of it's kind produced in the entire world, not a mass reproduction.
