“We have learned much more about history through the genius of these artists' works while being privileged to glimpse their personal stories. In the end, Tony and I have discovered much about ourselves through these masterpieces of timeless reflection.” 

The Honorable Beatrice Welters

Join us for an intimate discussion with the Honorable Beatrice Welters and Mr. Anthony Welters, collectors. Moderated by Jessica Stafford Davis.

Come enjoy high tea at the Georgetown Club with Washington, DC-based collectors, the Honorable Beatrice Welters and Anthony Welters. In the 1970’s, the Welters first started their collection with the purchase of a print by Henry O. Tanner. Today, their collection includes  numerous works, with a focus on African American art of the 19th and 20th centuries. 

Jessica Stafford Davis will  moderate an informal discussion with the Welters on topics that highlight their passion for collecting art by African American artists, how they wish to shape the legacy of their collection, and key influences on their decision-making process.

Davis is the founder of The Agora Culture, a multicultural web-based business arts platform that connects artists with a diverse array of new and experienced collectors. In addition, The Agora Culture presents "Art on the Vine", a four-week artist residency and an art fair that takes place on Martha’s Vineyard. Jessica currently serves on the board of the Washington Project for the Arts (WPA).
