ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE

ENJOY ART AT HOME WHILST IN LOCK DOWN!!! See work available for sale below.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support and gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress artist Matthew Burrows has instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge

The concept is a simple one. Artists post images of their work 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.

Artists who do residencies at Stiwdio Maelor leave work and when Maelor manages to sell that work 50% goes towards the running of Maelor and the other 50% goes towards the return of the artist. As part of the artist support pledge I will be putting up works for sale each week one instagram and Facebook. Each time I sell £1000 of work £200 will be put into a bursary kitty and bursaries will be given to artists whose work has sold to enable them to come back to Maelor. By purchasing a work you will help Maelor survive over this period whilst it is closed and also be supporting artists to be able to come back to Maelor once we reopen.

Maelor has reached its first £1000, so the £200 was split between Martha Orbach, Marianne Büttiker, Georgina Fay, Sharon Field and Mandy Oliphant. These artists will now receive the full value of the sold work to put towards completing another residency. Please support us in reaching the next £1000 and enabling more artists to return to Maelor once we reopen.

Postage is included in the prices (I am happy to post anywhere in the world) and all purchasers will receive a free set of Stiwdio Maelor postcards. Email stiwdiomaelor@gmail.com when you fall in love with a work. This page will be updated every time a new work is added to the #artistsupportpledge. Only unsold work will be shown on this page, as work is sold the work will be removed.

Special Fundraising print printed by master printmaker, Kip Gresham.

Corris

For around twenty years Kip has holiday in Corris each year. This year he hasn’t been able to, so instead, he has created a stunning screen print representing Corris to be sold by Stiwdio Maelor to raise funds so we can reopen. As you can imagine having to close down so suddenly has, like a lot of other businesses put the future of Maelor in jeopardy. Kip has kindly donated this edition of 20 prints to help with Maelor’s fundraising drive. Thus, we are selling the prints for a very low price of £40 including postage and a pack of our wonderful postcards. The print is titled ‘Corris’ and is 30 x 24cm and is printed on Somerset Cream, 300gsm paper. If you are in the Corris area, it can be seen hanging in the Maelor window and if I am in the studio you can knock on the door and buy it direct.
Kip has been a master printmaker for 40 years. He has established and worked at several well-known studios and printed with some amazing artists. He currently works at The Print Studio which he established in Cambridge. Visit http://www.theprintstudio.co.uk/kips-studios to find out more about Kip. 

There are currently two available.

Please consider purchasing this print to support Maelor and help us to continue providing residencies for artists and writers.
We all need a bit of brightness in our days.

Special Fundraising Framed photographs by Sue Kneebone.

These works were exhibited as part of Knowing Place exhibition curated by Veronica Calarco and Kim Waale held at the Gas gallery in Aberystwyth.
