Call for artists
We will be adding work throughout the run of the fundraiser! So jump in!
2020 has been a difficult year for everyone in every corner of the globe. On Sept 27th, while the world was trying to deal with their own problems, Azerbaijan launched a planned large-scale attack on Armenian republic of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh). Backed by Turkish military support, including foreign terrorists, and violating international conventions and ceasefire, they are targeting schools, hospitals, churches, journalists and the civilian population in flagrant violation of human rights, in the overt desire for the ethnic cleansing of Armenians from their ancestral homeland. Armenians in Artsakh and Armenia, vastly outnumbered by the aggressors, are fighting today on their own for their right to live in their indigenous lands and exist as a nation. The world is silent. Who needs another problem? Who cares?
In response to Armenia’s current situation, Plexus Gallery and artist Joanna Kambourian (featured image) are initiating an online exhibition to raise funds that will go directly to victims of this war. We are reaching out to you in the hope you would like to be involved and show your support by donating your artwork/s to the show. Plexus Gallery will not take any commission on the sales and is donating all its proceeds to the charity, while artists will retain 20% of the sales. Funds raised from artwork sales will be going to Insurance Foundation for Soldiers, aiming to help families of the soldiers who died during this war.
