The Artist Support Pledge is a growing international movement of artists supporting other artists. In these difficult times during COVID-19 when art galleries are closed and art shows and workshops have been postponed or cancelled, many artists are finding themselves without work, and art buyers have less access to original artworks.
The premise is quite simple but it’s proving an effective way of enabling people to buy unique artworks for their home, whilst also increasing support for independent artists and makers:
- Art for sale that’s affordably priced at up to £200/$200 is posted on Instagram by the artist who created it, using the hashtag #artistsupportpledge.
- Prospective buyers can directly approach the artist to ask any questions, and to arrange payment and delivery of their chosen original artwork.
- Each artist who reaches art sales of £1000/$1000 pledges to spend £200/$200 with other artists.
All original animal paintings by Caroline Skinner Art on this website which are priced at £200 and under are included in the Artist Support Pledge during the UK lockdown that started in March 2020. When you buy original animal artwork from my online shop, you are also helping me to support other artists.
Postage is free in the UK when your purchase is £40 or more. Other delivery information is available here.
The Artist Support Pledge is the brainchild of UK artist Matthew Burrows – find out more about him and the project at www.matthewburrows.org.
