Beating the Arts cuts – London Calling LA

London-calling- OCCCA Orange County Nicola AnthonyI am delighted to have been selected for another USA exhibition – this time at the OCCCA Museum in Orange County, with 30 talented London artists, entitled ‘London Calling’.

Honoured by the prestige of being selected, the artists have taken it upon themselves to promote and raise the profile of the London Art scene overseas. And in the light of drastic cuts to art funding, we are fundraising in order to fly some of us over there. Read on to find out how we’re doing it, how you can spread the word or even how you can help raise funds.

We aim to get some of the artists out there to be true ambassadors of the London art scene – A great opportunity for these 30 artists, but also for the profile of the London emerging Art scene in the US.

What we’re doing:

1) I am again offering the chance to commission your own portrait for £150… If you love my work and particularly my date stamp portraits  – email me here

2) We have a fundraising platform where you can donate money and receive artwork in return (here) from £15 – £500

3) We have extended what we’ve got on offer with an online shop (here) 

DETAILS: Check out our Etsy Shop

The artists have kindly donated some stunning art pieces which can be yours if you contribute to this campaign.  These artworks are usually at least twice the ‘contribution price’ listed, so this is really an incredible opportunity to get some original artworks for a fraction of the price – a very rare opportunity with this calibre of artist, and it is only possible for the duration of this campaign. (Any works not claimed will be returning to their original price).

So if you are looking for an artwork to add to your collection or an unusual portrait of yourself or someone you know, get in touch and help make an artist’s trip to LA possible at the same time!

So start thinking where it will fit on your wall or who might appreciate a Christmas present…

About the Artists:

Between us we have exhibited at The Venice Biennale, Tate Britain and Tate Modern, worked with clients such as Jerry Lewis and Groove Armada, and have had work auctioned by high profile Christies auctioneer Hugh Edmeades. Collectors of their work are in many countries and include Banksy and Bill Woodrow.
