Fellow artists we wanted to make you aware of this campaign that has launched on Instagram. Show your generosity. Sell some affordable work, buy some affordable work.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support and gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared.
In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress Matthew Burrows has instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge
The concept is a simple one. Artists post images of their work, on Instigram which they are willing to sell for no more than $200 each (not including shipping). Anyone can buy the work. Every time an artist reaches $1000 of sales, they pledge to spend $200 on other artist/s work.
To make a pledge, post your work with the #artistsupportpledge and follow the # to see everyone else's work. Keep updated on new opportunities and announcementsat the Instagram profile @artistsupportpledge
Repost and tell your friends, colleagues and collectors.
Let generosity be infectious.
