Last year, Austin artist Jennifer Chenoweth created the online gallery Generous Art as a place for local artists to sell existing work. The idea was that art lovers could shop without the pressure of a gallery setting, artists could make a few sales, and a portion of the proceeds could go to a local charity or non-profit. Customers get to choose not only the art they like, but also the non-profit which will benefit from the sale. So far, that plan seems to be working out pretty well.
Generous Art doesn’t exist only in the online world, though; they also present exhibitions and group shows like the current Beautiful Giving. Hosted by the architecture firm PageSoutherlandPage, Beautiful Giving will be open through October 15, with a reception on September 21.
Full disclosure: KUT is listed among the dozens of deserving non-profits you can choose to support when making a purchase from Generous Art.
