Archie Black has participated in many exhibitions over the years. His drawings and paintings have been on view in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, and they have been well received. The first exhibition in which his works were included was organised by Hans Jacob Glerfoss and Fridtjof Joensen and held at the technical college in Klaksvík in the beginning of the 70s.
