A Unique Part of Winston-Salem
Working from their studio in an historic home on North Patterson Avenue in Winston-Salem since 1972, the Huffs created award-winning art that has been exhibited in museums across the world and solicited by renowned collectors. Both together and separately, the couple depicted the African-American figure, African-American life, African-American celebrities and African-American history. The Huffs are unique in that they are one of few acclaimed married African-American partner artists. Their love and their work tie deeply to Winston-Salem.
