The Long Island Black Artists Association was founded in 1968 by a small group of artists namely, James Counts, Ernest Snell, Raymond Miles, and Charles Winslow. The purpose of the association is to help African-American artists to find a conduit for the exhibition of their work.
The organization also wishes to provide an atmosphere of fellowship in which professional and semi professional artists can exchange ideas, techniques and mutual support in the field of visual arts. They also strive to discover potential talent, to provide a cultural service to the community and offer a “sensitive environment” for the cultural expression of the larger African-American community.
