Let’s Not Stop Fighting Hate:
10% of Weekend Sales Go to Lowcountry Unity Fund
June 17 marks one year since Charleston lost nine of our beloved community members during a mass shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church. Now, with the recent devastation in Orlando, it feels more crucial than ever to commemorate the anniversary with an outpouring of love and — most importantly — by contributing to positive change however possible.
Meyer Vogl Gallery’s roots are, in fact, tied to contributing to positive change. The idea for our gallery first sprouted during “Artists for Emanuel,” a 90-person art exhibit that raised funds forCoastal Community Foundation’s Lowcountry Unity Fund, formed after the tragedy. The fundraiser was the brainchild of gallery owner Marissa Vogl; owner Laurie Meyer and director Katie Geer were executive committee members. It’s now our mission to stay committed to our community.
From Friday to Sunday, 10% of all gallery sales will be donated to the Lowcountry Unity Fund. If you’ve been thinking about purchasing artwork, now’s the time.
