BADC Fund Raiser Extended On-line

A FUNDRAISER FOR BLACK ARTISTS OF DC, ORIGINAL FINE ART POSTCARD EXHIBITION AND SALE…THEME “IMAGINE”

 The Black Artists of DC (BADC) first Post Card Fund Raiser was a great success.  Many patrons braved the inclement weather to attend and purchase these one of a kind Post Cards.  We had fun talking to the patrons and artists.  The artist told us how much fun they had producing the cards and one young couple came to purchase original art for the first time and stated that this was the only way they could afford to start their art collection.

BECAUSE OF THE INTEREST IN THESE CARDS AND THE MANY CALLS FROM OUT OF THE AREA, BADC IS EXTENDING THIS EVENT BY OFFERING THE REMAINING POST CARDS ON-LINE.

In a few days BADC make the remaining cards for sale on-line.  We will announce this on the WEB Site and through our artists and patrons mailing list.  If you wish to be informed by email of this and other events please fill out our contact page and you will be added to our mailing lists.  Please indicate whether you are an artist or patrons.  Patrons do not receive emails about meetings and artists calls.  If you already receive emails from us there is no need to fill out the contact form.

Please Review

In an effort to raise funds by making fine art affordable to the greater Washington DC area, BADC has pulled together some of Washington DC’s most outstanding artists and pooled them together with mid-career and emerging artists to offer 5″ x 7″ postcards for $25.00 each. Our members, as well as Black Artists from other cities, have created beautiful, powerful postcards depicting the theme IMAGINE in support of Black Artists of DC.
