In Memory of Charlie Crafts

A passionately believer in the power of the truth, Charlie Crafts saw art and creativity as a valued expression of the heart every activist needs to carry on the good fight. He was a steadfast supporter of ArtRage from its inception. Married to the gallery director, Rose Viviano, Charlie volunteered to do the jobs no one else would take on and praised ArtRage to anyone who would listen as offering a unique perspective.

He believed you needed to educate and listen to everyone you came into contact with; there being no need to look beyond your own back door to find people ready to challenge the status quo and work for justice.

Charlie always expressed gratitude for the people who were put in his life to learn from and love. His last days were shared by those who visited, sent cards and brought food as a way to show their respect for his presence and life journey. Make no mistake, he was grateful for each and every one of you as is his family.

We are grateful to all who have donated to ArtRage in Charlie’s name:
