A Call to Artists

Modella Gallery has been been disturbed about the continuing situation related to abuse of power, racial terror, bigotry, and hatred rather than unification and cohesion.

We are organizing a call to artists with a virtual auction of the work; theme of artwork submitted will be “Uprising: Solidarity & Social Justice.”
