Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support, gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress artist @matthewburrowsstudio has instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge on Instagram.
The concept is a simple one. I post images of my work that I am willing to sell for no more than £200 each. Every time I reach £1000 of sales I pledge to buy another artist's work for £200. This creates a dynamic culture and market, where all can contribute, whatever their level of success. This is a culture dependent on the honesty and generosity of our artistic communities at every level.
I will be posting my work on Instagram with the #artistsupportpledge. Please follow the # to see everyone else's work. Keep updated on new opportunities and announcements @artistsupportpledge
Repost and tell your friends, colleagues and collectors. Let generosity be infectious.
