#ArtistSupportPledge

I’ve decided to participate in #ArtistSupportPledge! 

The stay at home orders have disrupted many people’s livelihoods, including mine. I wear two hats professionally: (1) a painter who sells artwork and teaches drawing and painting classes and (2) a program administrator and teacher for Plop! Creative Art. Both have screeched to a halt due to the pandemic.

My studio during the stay-at-home order.


When I found #ArtistSupportPledge, I followed the progress. Through social media, #ArtistSupportPledge offers a process to support artists affected by the loss of income from Covid-19. It’s simple, and I’ve decided to participate. 

This is how it works: I sell my original paintings for $200 or less and once I reach $1000 of sales I purchase another artist’s work. It’s a feedback cycle that includes supporting those in need as well as helping yourself. And I’m all about that!

To explain my situation a little: my Spring/Summer plein air classes got canceled; I had to leave my National Park Service artist residency at Weir Farms two weeks early (right in the middle of the mayhem in March); Philadelphia public schools closed so my work as a Community Art Partner through Fleisher Art Memorial was canceled; Plop! Creative Art class contracts were suspended; and, last but not least, the (amazingly fun) art fair in Philadelphia– Inliquid’s Art for the Cash Poor– was pushed back to a later date. Needless to say these past four months have been hard. 

If you’re interested in the painting, you can send me an email (jennylgrh@gmail.com) so we can figure out shipping. You can order it directly from my shop page using debit or credit card.
