Press Release: Art for hArt’s Sake

Arts for hArt’s Sake

1 June 2020

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, throughout the month of June, 100% of all sales made on the Art Edit website will go direct to the artist.

As we’re all aware the arts have taken a huge hit over the past few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And the best way to support Australian artists at the moment is to buy their work, enabling them to buy materials and continue their practice.

The value of artists and their work is so apparent and obvious to everyone in our country – as expressions of beauty, taste and identity.

Art Edit, an Australian publication and online platform for emerging and self-represented artists, is launching the Art for hArt’s Sake campaign throughout the month of June. The campaign encourages Australians – individually, as a couple or a family, to buy an Australian artist’s work right now.

“By buying just one artwork you can help an artist continue their practice, while gifting yourself or a loved one with a beautiful and engaging artwork to love forever,” said Art Edit’s publisher Siobhan Spratt. “Art Edit is the number one stop for advice and guidance in finding and buying unique and original Australian artwork, so we’re calling on all collectors, renovators, decorators, art lovers and everyone who understands the importance of Australia’s rich visual art culture to log on now at artedit.com.au and find the best of Australian new talent for your walls or that of a loved one.”

At artedit.com.au, you’ll find thousands of original artworks, free shipping and free returns so you can discover what strikes a chord with your hArt today.

If you would like any further information about this initiative, Art Edit or our shopfront, or if we can assist with anything at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
