ArtShare Is Tonight!

April 28, 2022


Paint the town in support of artists with developmental disabilities and people with disabilities in Ukraine

Do you have plans for this evening? You do now! Head to Clover’s Fine Art Gallery in Brooklyn for the opening reception of the 12th edition of ArtShare, HeartShare’s annual art gallery exhibit showcasing—and selling!—new works by artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The reception runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., with a program that begins at 6 p.m. featuring remarks by host and legendary Q104.3 FM DJ—and longtime HeartShare Board Member—Jim Kerr. Joining him will be Delia Tucker, Director of Region 4 (NYC) for OPWDD.

With more than 200 works executed in a wide range of media by 100 artists of all ages, ArtShare 2022 will also showcase works from the artisans of the Brooklyn Jewelry Studio. New for 2022: We’re auctioning an original sunflower painting—inspired by Vincent Van Gogh—by artist Khalid Akeem Washington and selling signed, limited-edition archival digital prints, all for a very good cause. The sunflower is the national flower of Ukraine and proceeds from the auction of Washington’s original painting and the sale of signed prints will benefit Fight for Right, a nonprofit that fights for the rights of people with disabilities in Ukraine and is working to ensure their safety during the war.

See you tonight!
