Ikon reopens after lockdown*, devoting its galleries to an exhibition of artworks for sale by over 250 Birmingham artists. Submitted through an open call, work in a range of media is presented both in the gallery and online. 100% of the proceeds from artwork sales go directly to the artists. Formed in response to Covid-19, Ikon for Artists aims to support local artists whose income has been impacted by the pandemic.
When me and Emily Scarrott submitted our diptych for the IKON Gallery IKON for Artists show I was sure it would get in because of the /no curatorial selection process.' Then we waited and I became less sure, they eventually accepted in, so here it is. For sale £999.99 - Here's to the next 22 years Jonathan!
