Save A Museum Art Sale - Sunday, April 17, 2016

You may remember that ATFA Appraisals was one of the supporters of the Save A Museum art sale at Kenkeleba Gallery in New York City in 2013.  This year, the board and members of the Toussaint Louverture Cultural Foundation are hosting another sale of the remaining works.

On Sunday, April 17th from 2pm to 7pm, Haitian fine art donated by collectors and artists, world-wide, will be available for sale in an effort to raise funds for the repair of the Musee d'Art Haitien du College St. Pierre in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.  The Musee was damaged during the January 12, 2010 earthquake and has not reopened to the public.

View a collection of fine art works from some of Haiti's most laudable artists.  An exhibition catalog is available for sale.  Donations are also welcome.  Sale and donations are tax deductible.  Contact the coordinators at 917-499-3638 and express your interest in attending and supporting this important effort.

Chief S.O. Alonge: Photographer to the Royal Court of Benin, Nigeria

I haven't seen this exhibit yet -- and I plan to -- but I wanted to call your attention to: Chief S.O. Alonge: Photographer to the Royal Court of Benin, Nigeria.  The exhibit ends July 31, 2016 at the Smithsonian's National Museum of African Art.  The website is full of good educational material including historical and contemporary photographs from Alonge's studio.
