Get To The Gallery! - Help Launch Em's Missional Art Career

From Em Campbell

Hooray! A prominent gallery in Fredericksburg has offered me a space, but to take this fun next step (and perhaps meet greater goals), requires funding for supplies, as well as help with dues for a 12 month commitment.

Just posted a video of my tiny studio space... it's very tiny. BUT I have big fun in there making things for folks and hashing out ideas. This was a longer video to shoot and edit, and things didn't always go as I scripted, so y'all will soon be able to enjoy a delightful blooper reel to go with the tour video!

More Info

After an encouraging year of growth in my art hobby, I'm hoping to reach a broader crowd of viewers through displaying my work in a local gallery downtown. 

Fredericksburg, though known more for its Civil War history than art,  has a rich creative community, and ArtFirst, an artist cooperative on Caroline Street, has helped foster that community by giving up-and-coming artists a place to be featured and find patrons and collectors. 

This fundraising campaign will help me to afford supplies, prepare my best work for display,  and will provide the funds needed for the required one year commitment. The campaign is an experiment, and the outcome will determine my next step as an artist. 

My broader goal in reaching a wider audience, is to generate a small income to help friends and family pursuing adopting. I want to steward my talents, and the benefits of them, for God's glory, and a way I can do that is to give a large percentage of the proceeds from the sale of my work to help fund adoptions. This is why I call my what I do a "missional" art career.

Update #3

This is an example of one of the pieces that will be going up in the gallery if I meet my goal. This is also one of the most expensive pieces for me to make as it involves painting, framing, and mounting the art, so that it spins freely when hung on a wall. You want to know where your kindly donated dollars will be going? They will enable me to create a series of these that will hopefully be a hit in the gallery. Helping me launch my small business in this waywill mean helping me raise regular funds for adoption. Thank you!

Wow! More than a $1000 raised in the first few days?! That's halfway there already! This is so encouraging, y'all! Looks like the Lord may be providing the way to open this door. There's nothing small about running a small business, I'm learning. Thank you all for giving and sharing to help make this happen. ❤️✨
