Women’s Lockdown Art, with the support of the Zabludowicz Collection. An exhibition and online art sale, from11 November and run until Friday 25 December 2020. Artwork created by women artists during the pandemic will be available to buy on the Women + Health website at https://wla-exhibition.womenandhealth.org.uk/
Although the recent Lockdown announcement has meant the abandonment of the planned exhibition of the work at the Zabludowicz Collection, all the art will be available for viewing and sale online.
All the amazing artists are very generously donating 50% - and in many cases 100% - of the sale price to Women + Health. See below for a full list of participating artists.
Watch the beautiful launch video
Women + Health has been supporting isolated and vulnerable women, including those who are survivors of domestic violence and rape, for over 30 years. It has offered a lifeline to local women, helping them to overcome multiple health challenges, but lockdown has brought extra financial pressures.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching (including myself), technical support, gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress @matthewburrowsstudio -instagram- has instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge
I have joined this pledge and I've made a few works available, on view on this site #artistsupportpledge . All works are no more than £200 (and less), excluding shipping, and once I reach £1000 of sales i pledge to buy another artist's work.
These are extraordinary times. GENEROSITY IS CONTAGIOUS
* I am honoured and proud that my work got a mention on this wonderful book AMALGAMA, WOMEN, IDENTITY & DIASPORA, published in october 2019. Edited by Daniela Galan for ART AMALGAMA - a platform for the promotion of Latin American Art in europe and the USA. Beautifully written, in depth, form and content, this is a bilingual book (English and spanish) and promises to be an important reference for the future. The book is available here
