Online Art Store, Cream Town Launched to Help Artists Financially Affected by COVID-19

Many industries are being hit hard by the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the industries that is being hit perhaps the hardest is the art community. As people rush out to buy more toilet paper, they aren’t doing much to support artists. Art galleries and exhibitions have been shut down, and freelance gigs are drying up. These artists, who often live paycheck to paycheck, are struggling to make ends meet during this crisis. That’s where online art store Cream Town is stepping in. Cream Town is “a collective art shop of over 100 artists who have been financially affected by COVID-19.” Their mission is to help these artists make it through these troubled times.

“We’re all in the same situation at the moment,” says Cream Town founder Isaebella Doherty. A photographer herself, Doherty launched the site on Thursday, March 19. The site allows any out-of-work artists to post their work, whether they are established or just starting out. Since its opening, Cream Town has sold over $4000 of prints. There’s a wide range of subjects in the art, and the selection covers everything from photography to collage to illustration. Each piece is priced at $100, with each work being printed by Melbourne’s Hound & Bone studio. The prints are being limited to only 10 each, and they can be shipped all over Australia for just $12.95.

Not only is it beyond reasonably priced, but you’ll also be helping a sector of the economy that is being particularly hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. You can accomplish two good things—you can redecorate (or decorate as the case may be) and you can help out a starving artist.
