Great to hear that Emerging Artists are supporting each other by buying each others art. This is amazing and a great way to help the arts.
Emerging artists pledge to buy each other’s work amid the coronavirus economic slowdown
In the art market, Covid-19 has had the most immediate effect on emerging artists. Up-and-coming artists, who, even before the pandemic, were making very modest incomes, are now left without commercial outlets for their work, as many galleries, auction houses, and art fairs have shut down.
Now a new initiative called the Artist Support Pledge is aimed at alleviating some of the economic strain from the coronavirus cancellations, and foster a sense of solidarity within the art community. Conceived by British painter Matthew Burrows, the scheme works on the principle of generosity.
