ART FOR CHANGE Survey Aids Earthquake Relief Efforts in Turkey and Syria

ART FOR CHANGE is celebrating five years with a survey on view now through March 25 at Kravets Wehby Gallery in New York. Featured in “5 YEARS: An ART FOR CHANGE Survey,” the socially conscious arts platform is presenting a show of its most iconic print editions by over 30 artists, which will see a portion of proceeds given to the International Rescue Committee for earthquake relief in Turkey and Syria.

“We are thrilled to work with Kravets Wehby Gallery on this project that not only celebrates the five years of impact we’ve had, but also raises funds for such an urgent cause,” said Jeanne Masel, Founder of ART FOR CHANGE. “I was honored when Marc and Susie invited us to take a look back at some of our most beloved prints marking our fifth year in business. We’re thrilled to partner with Kravets Wehby in this way after having collaborated with several of their program’s exceptional artists.”

Featured in the sale are existing editioned prints (many of which are sold out from their archives) by artists like José Lerma, Amy Lincoln, Kour Pour, Emily Furr, Danielle Orchard, Patricia Reneé Thomas, Larissa De Jesús Negrón, Arghavan Khosravi, Hiba Schahbaz, and Hyegyeong Choi, as well as Olivier Souffrant, who has introduced a new, hand-embellished canvas print for the occasion of the show. Hanging on the walls of Kravets Wehby’s Chelsea gallery, viewers will find works like Souffrant’s Reclining Nude, which features a collage of elements composing a scene of a woman posed dramatically on a balcony; an abstracted portrait print by Jade Thacker, Embarrassment Safe Word Wheel Spin, made from a painting featured in an exhibition of the same name; and the work of Jamea Richmond-Edward, whose Fly Girl with Four Orbs looks at fashion as an entity of self-expression.
