Event: Saturday & Sunday, November 4 & 5 from noon-5pm
Black artists and curators from across the DMV have created original artwork the size of a 5” x 7” postcards for sale to the public. The works will be in a lobby exhibition and this year’s theme is VOTE. Artists were asked to create pieces inspired by the legacy of Black people and the vote. All postcards will be sold for $40 each, cash/card and carry. It is an opportunity to begin an art collection or expand a current collection, for a nominal price. Artists known locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally will have original works available. This is an opportunity to purchase work from noted artists at a fantastic price. A printmaking workshop, discussions on collecting fine art with Dr. Pamela Harris- Lawton (MICA) and Gia Harewood of Giametric Lessons, and more will be presented. No tickets needed. Get there early to get the best buys. The funds support BADC exhibitions, and the many activities held to support Black artists and Black visual culture in the DMV.
“This event is always fun. I meet the artists, see fine art that I can afford, and learn more about collecting art,” Cheryl Edwards, Washington DC artist.
