62 High Street

This unique collection representative of various regions, tribes and traditions of the African continent has been assembled by collector Gordon B. Lankton. The Gallery encompasses a diverse collection of more than 600 + African tribal masks, figures, sculpture and artifacts crafted in stone, wood, clay and bronze, spanning 32 tribes, including Dogon, Baule, and Bamana art. It is located in Clinton’s buzzing commercial district on High Street. In a reciprocal venture with shop owner Cynthia Cannon—their goal being to advance the renaissance of downtown Clinton—the Gallery is located at the back of the eclectic store through an entry portal. Visitors have found and been enchanted with the rather dense exhibition of Lankton’s private collection.
