ACA Gallery was founded in June 2004 by Carol Mark to create an incubator for art and social change.
The gallery represents emerging and established artists. Carol Mark is involved in humanitarian grassroots projects locally and globally and she has seen first hand how "love in action" can change lives for the better. From establishing a medical clinic in Afghanistan, to performing medical aid in the Yucatan, and helping build communities in Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, she recognized everyone has the power to effectively create change. A percentage of art sales are donated to grassroots humanitarian aid projects
