Ubuntu Fine Art ((423 Germantown Ave.)is the city’s first Black-owned, Black curated fine art gallery that specifically showcases one artist.
Ubuntu is an African philosophy that emphasizes being one self through others or in short “‘I am because of who we all are.” To practice this philosophy, Seven made sure that his art gallery was located in the heart of his old neighborhood, Germantown.
Through the powerful and vibrant photographs he’s taken over the years, Steven looks to not only let the minds of visitors wander to far-away lands but to also spark the minds of the youth.
Understanding the financial barriers that come along with underserved communities, Steven made it a point to offer various sizes and price point to make ownership of fine art a possibility for all. “My goal was to allow a low entry point to investment, so that everybody could take part and take pride in the investment of fine art,” Steven states.
