MN ART MART

MN Art Mart at soovac.org is an instant way to help artists who rely on income from contract labor, traveling gigs, and sales of work, who have been adversely affected by the events of COVID-19. As we reinvent how we live and work during this unprecedented time, online platforms for supporting each other are more important than ever. This idea was brought to us by Teréz Iacovino, a visual artist and Assistant Curator for the University of Minnesota’s Katherine E. Nash Gallery. 

 

We’ll be acting as a hub to link you to artists’ individual platforms so that 100% of your money will go directly to the artists.

 

Any artist can be featured on MN Art Mart by emailing the following info to mnartmart@soovac.org

 

  • 1-3 images representative of the kinds of work you sell

  • 1 sentence bio

  • 1 sentence description of your practice and/or the work for sale.

  • A link to the platform/s you sell work through (i.e. website, Instagram, Etsy, etc.)

We will be adding artists when we get your information, and updating this page twice a week. Once we start populating this page we'll post a thumbnail of the work below and then you can click on the image for complete artist information.
