In the spirit of the Holiday Season, a group of Buffalo visual artists will auction their original work in support of Hurricane Matthew relief and the preservation of local jazz legacy.
Partial proceeds from the sale of bidding seats and each painting will go to American Red Cross and other not for profits supporting Hurricane Matthew recovery in the U.S. and Haiti; and the Pappy Martin Legacy Jazz Society.
Starting bids for the 2016 Holiday Art for Artists Auction range from $150 for smaller works to $3000 for some of Cooper’s canvasses.
In addition to William Y. Cooper, participating artists, among others, include George K. Arthur, whose black and white photography, “Everyday Places” is on exhibit at Nichols School through November 14; Rubens Mukunzi, publisher and editor of The Karibu News and first place winner of The Pitch competition; Betty Pitts-Foster, artist-in-residence at Buffalo Arts Studio who most recently exhibited at Art Dialogue Gallery; UB Associate Professor of Transnational Studies James Pappas and Dawn Martin Berry-Walker.
The vibrant, intricate canvases of prolific and prominent painter, muralist and art educator William Y, Cooper, who passed away last February, are facilitated by his wife Glendora Johnson-Cooper.
“This evening will essentially address more than one legacy. People who own Bill’s artwork, here in Buffalo and throughout the East Coast, including Dawn, recognize the value of building family legacy through the purchase and passing on of original artwork from generation to generation. Art appreciates as it is appreciated. That is something my husband believed and one of the realities we hope to promote,” Johnson-Cooper said.
