The Artist Support Pledge is a great initiative by Matthew Burrows - where artists can buy and sell
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, Matthew Burrows has instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE on Instagram.
@matthewburrowsstudio has instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge The concept is a simple one. You post images of your work you are willing to sell on Instagram for no more than £200 each (not including shipping.) Every time you reach £1000 of sales you pledge to buy another artist's work for £200.
So make a pledge and post your work with the #artistsupportpledge follow @matthewburrowsstudio to keep updated and the # to see everyone else's work. Repost and tell your friends, colleagues and collectors. Let generosity be infectious!
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. So make a pledge, post your work with the #artistsupportpledge
