Al Burts 


Al Burts is a skillful artist who uses the thin lines of a ballpoint pen, sometimes mixed with oil paint, to create bold works of art that display African American values in a dignified and powerful style. He works on a variety of surfaces including un-stretched canvas, paper and wood to displace his realistic and symbolic images inspired by the African roots of America. 

Al Burts grew up in Alexandria, VA and received his formal training from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. He is an alumnus of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, and a retiree of The National Gallery in Washington, D.C. Burts is a two time Semi-finalist winner of the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series and will be exhibiting for the second time in Art Basel Miami Beach this December 2012. Burts has exhibited in the National Gallery of Art (Washington, DC), the DuSable Museum of African American History (Chicago, IL), International Visions Gallery (Washington, DC), T. Miller Gallery (Baltimore, MD), Evolve the Gallery (Sacramento, CA), and Gallery Guichard (Chicago, IL).
