“Artists for Amnesty” is the earliest benefit exhibition in the history of Amnesty International. Founded over three decades ago by John Natsoulas, it was the first to give artists the opportunity to support the organization through their artwork. Now, hoping to amplify artists’ demands for peace and understanding in troubling times, the John Natsoulas Gallery is hosting a new “Artists for Amnesty” exhibition and benefit in collaboration with international activists and artists. Reviving a great tradition, the artist community can once again foster a dialogue with the world through their art while helping to raise funds for refugees, asylum seekers, political prisoners, those enduring torture, and other victims of human rights abuses. This is a rare opportunity to see fine works from around the world, while contributing to efforts towards peace and common understanding between all humanity. This exhibition will feature artists from 10 different countries.

On May 7, 2022, a benefit party and opening reception will be held at the John Natsoulas Gallery. It will feature multiple live bands, refreshments, and a stellar exhibition representing global artistic perspectives. The exhibition will be open from May 4 to June 4, 2022. All proceeds will benefit those who face great injustice in Ukraine and around the world.
