#artistsupportpledge is an Instagram based campaign started by @matthewburrowsstudio so all the links in this article will lead to pages within the Instagram app or the website if you are working on a desktop computer.

“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 I have instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge

The concept is a simple one. Artists post images of their work, on Instagram which they are willing to sell for no more than £200 each (not including shipping). Anyone can buy the work. Every time an artist reaches £1000 of sales, they pledge to spend £200 on another artist/s work.

To make a pledge, post your work with the #artistsupportpledge and follow the # to see everyone else’s work. Keep updated on new opportunities and announcements @artistsupportpledge.

Repost and tell your friends, colleagues and collectors. Let generosity be infectious.”

Buyers should browse the work available through the Instagram #artistsupportpledge and get in touch with individual artists. Many will already have online shops in place but some may not in which case you should contact the artist to make a buying arrangement.
