FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - The Arts Council of Fayetteville is sponsoring a panel discussion about collecting black art, from buying pieces because you love them to creating a collection that has intrinsic value.

The free discussion will be held Saturday at the Arts Council offices on Hay Street.

Panelists include Jerald Melberg, owner of a Charlotte art gallery; Dwight Smith, an abstract expressionist painter and assistant professor of visual art at Fayetteville State University; and J. Wayne Riggins, an arts supporter and collector.

Calvin Mims, executive director of the Ellington-White Community Development Corp. in Fayetteville, is the facilitator of the discussion.
