Artmag‘s new initiative has been met with an enthusiastic flood of responses, which we’ve been posting on social media.
We’re asking anyone producing new visual art and craft/sculpture work since the UK lockdown began, to send us a good-quality photo of it to this page. Jpg-format file (1200 pixels wide minimum) please, together with your name, contact email or website & message (max 50 words) about the piece, and we’ll do our best to post some of our favourites. Follow #mynewart #artmag and #artmaguk hashtags.
Since the public health emergency lockdown, artists have been producing imaginative and vigorous work in response, galleries have enhanced their online offerings, and many who have been looking for the time to settle-in to producing new work, maybe for the first time, have finally got that chance. And social media platforms have seen an explosion of artist support initiatives. We hope this will be a helpful way of adding to the activity. We’ll be looking for some great new work in the coming weeks!
