Artists Supporting Artists

It’s great to see such a generous display of solidarity among artists helping out their fellow artists struggling to keep afloat due to Coronavirus.

The Emergency Art Workers Support Fund (EAWSF) is a temporary relief fund supporting creative practitioners who have been impacted by COVID-19. It takes less than a week from the deadline for the funds to be transferred into the successful recipient’s bank account.

I’ll be keeping my eye on Barry McGlashan’s cracking painting below.

Bookmark the date and share it with as many art lovers as you can.

Good luck with your bidding! Some highlights…
