BAPC Artists in Conversation with Meg Shiffler

Tuesday, February 9th. 7-8pm PT


We're jazzed to bring you the second of our Artist-Curator Conversations tonight.

Register here and join us online at 7pm PT.


Our Curator in conversation this time around will be Meg Shiffler, Galleries Director of the San Francisco Arts Commission. It was a great pleasure to work with her in 2019 when she curated BAPC's 20th Anniversary exhibition Marking Time at the Harvey Milk Photo Center, and so we're really pleased to have her be part of our programming again now.


Meg will talk with six BAPC photographers about their work in our current exhibition Magnetic Pull, other project work, and honestly whatever she decides to delve into (it's always interesting with Meg!). The BAPC photographers on-board Tuesday will be Anthony Delgado, Gene Dominique, Tom Lavin, Angelika Schilli, Nathalie Strand and Rusty Weston.


Please also save the date for our last Artist-Curator Conversation on February 20 at 11 am, which is also the close of the exhibition.


We hope you'll register for both of these programs, and visit the exhibition in person or on our website (details and links below). And we welcome all comers, so please share this email with your other contemporary photography-loving friends.


Questions? Comments? See you "in Conversation" Tuesday eve!

Here's the link to register for again.

BAPC's fundraiser for the San Francisco's African American Art & Culture Complex was a fantastic success!


At last, we’ve worked through all the details from our recent online fundraiser and are thrilled to report the terrific outcome.

From Sept. 17-Oct. 11, we sold 65 photographs altogether, raising $6500!

100% of these funds have now been donated to the African American Art and Culture Complex in San Francisco, to add to the initial donation that the collective itself made back in August.

We extend our sincere thanks to everyone who made a purchase and hope you enjoy the original artwork from one or more BAPC photographers. We’re truly gratified that sustaining Black creatives in the Bay Area through the AAACC resonated strongly with our audience, and that so many people were so generous in participating with us.

To everyone who bought prints in our benefit, a sincere thank you from all of us at BAPC!

Below, you can read the email Melorra Green and Melonie Green, the co-Executive Directors of AAACC wrote to the BAPC:


October 27, 2020 Greetings Bay Area Photographers Collective, On behalf of the African American Art and Culture Complex we would like to take a moment to extend our deepest gratitude for your generous contribution of $6,500 raised at the fundraiser hosted by your organization. The AAACC truly appreciates your support towards our efforts of serving the Western Addition/Fillmore community, providing affordable space for members of the community, and fostering the talents of local artists. The African American Art and Culture Complex is a community based, 501 (c)3 arts and cultural organization. Our mission is to empower our community through Afro-centric artistic and cultural expression, mediums, education, and programming. Your contribution supports events such as our annual Holiday Fair, Martin Luther King Jr. Service Day, and our new online platform. Our work is dedicated to inspiring children, youth, and families, to serving as agents of change, and to fostering a commitment to community service and activism. In addition, we encourage, support, and promote the work of intergenerational, aspiring Bay Area artists and strive to develop partnerships with organizations that are similarly committed to our mission. Thank you again for your kind support! Best in Arts and Community, Melonie Green and Melorra Green, Co-Executive Directors



This fundraiser was only the beginning of the BAPC' sustained commitment to supporting Bay Area Black artists and the amplification and inclusion of more diverse voices in the Bay Area arts community. We welcome your suggestions and ideas on how we can best be supportive of diverse artists; please reach out!
