KNOXVILLE (WATE) - An Atlanta artist visited Knoxville Sunday to help out a local organization.

The 100 Black Women of Knoxville Coalition held a private event at the Knoxville Museum of Art. 

Artist Cecil Bernard displayed his paintings, which later went up for sale. 

Proceeds of the event went to the 100 Black Women of Knoxville Coalition. Their goal is to help fund and support HIV and AIDS education initiatives in our local communities. 

Bernard says he loves being able to use his work to give back. "It's exciting to be part of something. Don't just drift through life. Try to be involved. And that's what this is all about, just being involved."

Of the 50 pieces of art, organizers say they sold about 20.
