The Association of African-Canadian Artists (AACA), is a membership-based nonprofit trade organization that serves to enhance the economic well-being of African - Canadian Artists & Artisans, encourage creative expression and artistic excellence, and expand public awareness, appreciation and acquisition of fine Black Art and Craft.

In addition, the AACA serves as an advocate for Artists of the African Diaspora. It is committed, by positive and cooperative means, to promote improvement throughout the industry. The AACA has become a collective voice of African - Canadian Artists as it continues to grow and gain recognition. The AACA actively works to be a valuable resource for not only artist, but also the organizers and directors of art exhibits. Click here to learn more.

To further JD Butterfield's commitment to our philanthropic goals, we have partnered with the AACA & renowned Artist and Curator Joan Butterfield - to give our Patron of the Arts Members:

An Invitation to Joan’s Studio.

The works featured on this site represent only a fraction of the Joan's creations, and she remains inspired to creating new works regularly. Our Parton of the Arts Members gain access to Gifts, Collections, Limited Editions and 'One of a Kind' works & Discounts - from Joan Butterfield's studio, that are not available to general public.
