We are so happy to be supporting Lauren Pirie‘s COVID RELIEF SALE. As if there wasn’t already a reason for adding her work to our collection now, we’ve just added two more very good reasons to.
Every day this week, she’ll be posting one of her pieces for at least half-off the original price and donating 50% of the sale price to a different organization we care about!
Works include RAVEL/ THE LONGINGS benefitting Glad Day Book Shop’s Emergency Survival Fund for LGBTQ2S artists, performers, and tip-based workers, and 𝘈 𝘓𝘖𝘕𝘎 𝘛𝘐𝘔𝘌 𝘊𝘖𝘔𝘐𝘕𝘎, benefitting CUE Art Projects providing high-access grants, mentorship, employment, and exhibition opportunities for new-generation artists living and working on the margins in Toronto. 👉 Both works were originally listed at $2,100 and $2,300 respectively, now available in the SALE SALE SALE for $999.99 😛, with 50% of the sale price going to the selected organization, and the remaining to the artist.
RAVEL/LONGINGS is pretty neat cause you can display it in one of two ways. Measures 60 x 38” (5ft w) painted in acrylic, with a lot of fine details in micro pigment ink, on canvas, and can be requested with arms extended or secured as shown. It was originally commissioned under @io990_’s brilliant vision for exhibition in Purple Nights: Field.
Lauren, about A LONG TIME COMING: “This piece is 28 x 48” (4ft H) painted in acrylic and ink, with fine details in micro pigment ink, on canvas. It was one of the first pieces I made that translated the processes I use on paper to canvas and it took months to finish.”
Thank you for your support, and thanks to Lauren for her ongoing commitment to supporting creative and local communities. Follow along with the art works as they are posted on Lauren’s Instagram account (@lapirie), and do give generously.
