«Black Art Matters» is Austin Justice Coalition's (AJC) inaugural art show/ fundraiser to end this year's Black Unity Week. «Black Art Matters» aims to be an art show that highlights criminal justice, social justice and the Black Lives Matters movement.
In addition to an art show, there will be a silent auction where each artist would donate one piece and the proceeds from that would be apart of the fundraiser portion for AJC. Artists will keep their sales from all of their other pieces as we hope to encourage economic support of local Black artists.
The featured artists for the this inaugural event include:
Facebook: The Art of Jean-Pierre Verdijo
Anthony V. Patterson
Facebook Page: Mixed Hues, LLC
IG: Gaio gallery
Facebook Page: facebook.com/GaioGallery/

There is a suggested $10 donation price for admittance to this event, however donations in any amount will grant you admittance to the event.
«Black Art Matters» has been brought to you, especially, by the collaboration of Miriam Conner (Curator) and Stephanie Warren (Creative Director, Austin Justice Coalition)
