Posted: Updated:
BEDFORD-STUYVESANT -

World renowned artist Leroy Campbell opened his new exhibition Saturday at the Richard Beavers Gallery in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

Campbell is best known for his paintings depicting the lives of African-Americans.

The exhibition is called “Working Together.” 

"If we are working together as a whole. It takes a whole lot of people to make a lot one person whole. Well, it takes a whole lot of people to also be healthy in this society." 

Campbell says he owes a big part of his success to the kindness of others throughout his life and wants to continue to pass it on. 

"I'm the result of a person who came out of poverty, who came out of dysfunction and, because of other people in the community who stepped in to show me what love looks like, I turned out to be a successful well-known artist," says Campbell. 

The exhibition will be open to the public until next year.
