"I think that's what's so great about Trueson," Jones continues. "He recognizes the value of the work as it exists — art for art's sake and not just about getting into the major art markets — but it's about a community and for community in its time, it's just as important as all those sort of traditional purchase professional accolades."

This is an incredible opportunity to highlight my work to an international audience. I grew up homeschooled in the Unification Church. The internal conflict with leaving my religious upbringing behind is explored through my work with the retelling of biblical stories with me as roles I identify with.

"“I want to make a difference in our communities, and art seemed like a simple way to do that,” Daugherty said.
A biracial Black American artist, Daugherty has been creating art all his life in a variety of mediums. In the beginning of 2020, he began painting portraiture. This decision came from his desire to create art that wouldn’t require a familiarity of contemporary art for it to be understood or appreciated."
