BADC Fund Raiser

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

 WASHINGTON, DC Non-Profit group Black Artists of DC (BADC) is pleased to announce a group exhibition of affordable fine art in the form of 5″ x 7″ postcards, featuring the dynamic images of some of the best artists in Washington DC.

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.

BADC is a non-profit organization that each year offers exhibitions of local and national Black Artists. BADC offers exhibition opportunities, workshops, educational opportunities, critiques, curating opportunities, studio visits and excursions. It serves as a supportive community for artists of African descent, and art lovers alike. The funds raised will assist the organization in boosting its efforts to support Black artists in DC and beyond. The theme “IMAGINE” is a call for citizens of this country to call upon their creativity in a time when the status quo is obsolete.

Works by Washington DC artists Cheryl Edmonds, Francine Haskins, Juliee Dickerson­ Thompson, and Aziza Claudia Gibson-Hunter will also be available, with 50% of sales going to BADC.
