If you love getting a care package, raise your hand. Good—that’s, like, 97.5 percent of you. Good thing Cerbera Gallery in the Crossroads has come up with an amazing Art Care Package designed to support local visual artists in these difficult times. The gallery has partnered with emerging, mid-career, and established artists to carefully curate a subscription-based care package containing four small works of art that can be shipped (or personally hand-delivered locally) to the patron.
So, how does it work?! Every subscriber will receive their Art Care Package containing works from four different artists in various mediums for the coming two to three months—depending on the length of your subscription. Drawings, paintings, mixed-media pieces, and ceramics will be unique, while photographs and prints will be all be limited to 15 each. All pieces will be hand-signed by the artist (or will be accompanied by a COA) and have a maximum unframed size of 8 × 10 inches. All works will come framed and ready to hang unless they are ceramics or sculptural works.
After paying participating artists, Cerbera Gallery will donate all proceeds (minus shipping costs) of its share to the Kansas City Artists Coalition. “Cerbera Gallery has been in partnership with the Kansas City Artists Coalition (KCAC) for the past two years, and we see this as yet another instance to help support the tireless effort of the KCAC mission of supporting local artists through their Artist Studios, artist-focused business programming, and exhibition opportunities,” says owner Philipp Eirich.
The gallery is only offering a mere 15 subscriptions, so hurry before they are sold out. The first subscription includes artwork from Laura Nugent, Angie Jennings, Melanie Sherman, and Katherine Bello. “The Art Care Package is an opportunity for local artists to gain further exposure to an international audience and receive necessary funds that will help to support them during these unprecedented times. We greatly value Cerbera Gallery’s support of not-for-profits like KCAC during these times when funding and support are difficult to find and sustain,” says KCAC’s executive director Marissa Starke. “Additionally, we love to see masterful local artwork delivered to patrons’ homes bringing joy in a time of uncertainty.”
