Salt Eaters is an annual, regional survey of contemporary art. The project serves as a fundraiser to support Salt, the fellowship.
Salt is an unrestricted grant founded by artist, womanist and curator Mahari Chabwera in 2020 for the purpose of supporting Black women artists through critical transitions in their careers. The fellowship and exhibition take their name from The Salt Eaters, Toni Cade Bambara's novel set in a southern town of Black faith healers.
Salt Eaters 2023 featured artwork from 20 artists, an all-white attire Collectors' Night Dinner with music by John Tyler and an indigo-attire Opening Reception with music by Spaceship Sol-Omon.
