These 13 men, women, and children were all unarmed and all killed by police or vigilantes. Racial injustice has been a feature in American life since the first slaves were imported. While progress towards equality has been made, these people show it still has a long way to go. Remember George Floyd, Ahmaud Aubery, Rekia Boyd, Sean Reed, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Walter Scott, Yvette Smith, Dontre Hamilton, Aiyana Stanley-Jones, Breonna Taylor, Elijah McClain, and Tamir Rice. Make their deaths mean something.
Say Their Names will be exhibited in the "Then and Now" exhibition at the St. Augustine Art Association in July and August, 2021.

Live Wedding and Event Painting
If you're looking for a unique feature at your wedding, reception, birthday, corporate celebration, or other special event, consider having Skip creates a painting of it, live, as it happens. Guests can watch the painting develop during the course of the event. Afterward, Skip will take it back to the studio to bring it up to his high standards of finish. When delivered, you'll have a high-quality painting that will be a family heirloom for generations. For more information, visit the Asheville Event Paintings site.
