Artists Marketplace

The Artists Marketplace features artists providing a global perspective with local sensibilities. The Artists Marketplace resulted from an inquiry by a supporter of artists and the Foundation. The patrons inquired, “how might I purchase the artists work that I saw featured in the May 2020 artists talk?”. We are testing the virtual marketplace to determine if it meets your needs as an art patron and the needs of artists to achieve their highest potential. Global focus, local impact.
