Black art is more popular than ever, and we now have a new art auction house, Black Art Auction, showcasing some of the best African American artists in the nation that is slated to raise the hammer on May 16, 2020.

Black Art Auction is a unique auction house that focuses on the African American art market. Their current catalog is incredibly diverse and still growing. Expect work by John Biggers, Ed Clark, Charles McGee, Hilda Wilkinson Brown and more. While they offer quite a lot, consignment opportunities are still available.
Not only is this the right time for people who need to liquidate their art, it’s also a great time to add the masters to your art collection.

Here are some of our favorites:
