Artist Support Pledge
Since April I have been marketing and selling paintings through the Artist Support Pledge on Instagram. This has been a very successful and rewarding experience both through the sales achieved and the interaction with other artists around the world. I have been fortunate to have been in a position to buy a wonderful selection of work and make contact with a whole new group of artists.
Please visit my Instagram page @charles_rodwell_art to view the paintings, I update this on a regular basis.
A gallery of these paintings can be viewed by clicking here Artist Support Gallery
What is Artist Support Pledge?
ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE is a culture and economy in support of artists and makers established and led by artist Matthew Burrows on 16th March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is now a global movement of connected communities committed to an equitable and sustainable economy for artist and makers of all countries, media and ethnicities.
The project uses social media platform Instagram, which is a popular platform for artists to post images and share their work.
Every time an artist reaches £1,000 of sales, they pledge to buy £200 of work from other artist(s). Donations are encouraged to other concerns too, such as @_hopsitalrooms @screen.south @samaratanscharity @s_lawrencetrust @refugecharity @survivalinternational
ASP works by example, showing how a generous culture behaves and exploring the values that maintain its ethos. At the core of this is a commitment to equality of opportunity FOR ALL and an accessible platform to participate.
