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.
