Artist Support Pledge

•13 May 2020 • Leave a Comment

This is a really good initiative to help artists continue showing and selling their work whilst we live in lockdown.

Full info click here: http://www.matthewburrows.org/artist-support-pledge

The simple concept is that you put up a piece of artwork for sale for less than £200. Once you have sold £1,000 worth, you pledge to buy artwork from another artist up to the value of £200.

We support each other and spread our work more widely. What’s not to like?

It runs on Instagram but I’m mentioning it here with a couple of images I’ve put up. Please contact me if you’re interested in either or these.
You can also see my work on https://www.instagram.com/marysiaphotos/
