Sunday 18 April 2010
19h00 - 22h30ish

Our Guest Of Honor
Georges Val lived in Nigeria for 13 years where, in addition to being an artist, he was a member of the Board of the Nigerian Museum Society. He travelled across the country under the sponsorship of Nigerian Museums. His large dimension paintings, hand lacquered, show the flamboyant African ceremonies and and festivals that he visited.
Nigeria has 150 million inhabitants, and is the most populated country in Africa. (1 African in 5 is Nigerian). In Nigeria, there are 250 different ethnic groups and languages. Within the same culture, there are Animalists, Christians and Moslems. It's a rich cultural mosaic.
Nigerian Museums as well as the British press consider George's work to be unique. His first exhibition in London was featured on the front page of "West Africa", West Africa's largest English language magazine. He has had exhibitions at UNESCO and his work often figures in the press about Nigeria.
Many Afircan-Americans like myself, have roots in Nigeria. I once saw a video of an inauguration ceremony involving the family of a friend, a Nigerian Princess, which I found spellbinding. It will be fascinating to learn more about that culture!
