We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
We are dedicated to amplifying the voices of those who have been silenced, overlooked and pushed aside. With a focus on social justice, equality, and inclusion we hope to help level the playing field for underrepresented artists and communities. Our exhibitions focus on issues relating to gender, race, sexuality, systems of oppression, and the unseen forces driving our lives. Each show is intended to be a starting point for open dialogues- posing a question, asking you to think and react.
We do not sell artwork; instead, we believe that artists should get 100% of the sales money from their work. Links to artist's websites are attached to their names . We encourage our audience to contact artists individually, and to purchase work directly from artists. Buying directly from artists helps put more money in their pockets, allowing them to continue to make art, and helps to alleviate economic disparities.
