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, artists are committing to the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge
The concept is a simple one. You post images of your work you are willing to sell for no more than R2000 each. Every time you reach R10,000 of sales you pledge to buy another artist’s work for R2000. 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.
