ARTISTS AGAINST FOOD INSECURITY–25% CAMPAIGN

The huge rise in food insecurity since the start of the Covid 19 pandemic has prompted me to direct 25% of all direct art sales to the Greater Boston Food Bank and to encourage other artists to direct the same per cent to GBFB or other non-profits fighting food insecurity.  Please contact me if you would like a current price list for available art.  If you choose to make a purchase, you can pay for it with two checks or two electronic payments–one to GBFB and one to Kelly Slater Art.  If you are an artist or other creative professional, please consider joining this movement and use the hashtag .  #artistsagainstfoodinsecurity on social media.

KELLY’S CURRENT AND UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS

GALLERY AT WREN. Kelly is currently exhibiting at the annual Small Works Show at the Gallery at WREN in Bethlehm, NH.  The shows runs from December 4 through January 15.  While the gallery is open for in-person viewing, WREN also has a wonderful digital book–in which you can see all of the works on exhibit, learn more about each artist, and click a link to take you to their on-line store.  For those living at a distance, WREN is happy to ship.  Check out all the details here:  Gallery at WREN.  Kelly’s entries, both prints on Asian paper, are featured below.
