Help My Practice Grow
Maintaining an art practice in New York City is not easy. The cost of space and transportation is tremendous. Most artists have multiple jobs to guarantee a steady income, since art sales ebb and flow with the seasons, gallery shows, etc. Your contributions go toward the cost of supplies and the rental costs of a studio space.
