Dr. Maya Angelou Art Sale Update

Please join us for the Dr. Maya Angelou estate tag sale from August 6th, 7th, and 8th. Click here to learn more.

We would like to extend our gratitude to everyone who has shown interest in the sale of Dr. Maya Angelou’s art collection. We are very honored to be offering this treasured collection to the public. Dr. Angelou was a regular at our gallery. She came here to escape the world and to just relax. We were her “getaway.” This is a special time for us so please bear with us as we get everything in order for this weekend.

More images from our gallery have been added to this post. We hope you are able to make it to the Dr. Maya Angelou art sale which begins Friday, April 17th at 664 South Stratford Road, Winston-Salem, North Carolina.








Works by renowned artists such as Phoebe Beasley, Alonzo Adams, Synthia Saint James, John Willard Banks, and Robert Gwathmey will be available for purchase. The collection is also teeming with original African-American paintings, prints, and sculptures, many with inscriptions to Dr. Angelou.

A total of three sales will be handled by Laster’s. The first being the sale in their gallery, the other two will be on-site tag sales where the contents inside the homes of Dr. Angelou will be offered to the public. Objects available will include furniture and other household items.

    Unable to attend today. What an honor to be given the opportunity to have something she chose to share from her mark in history. Please let me know when her residence items are for sale and if I can make a purchase over the phone. Thank you.
