Atlanta-based gallerist and photographer Jennifer Schwartz is leaving on a crusade, a Crusade for Collecting. Much lighter in mission and less dangerous than the crusades of long ago, Schwartz is on a mission to encourage people of broad income levels to collect art, art that makes your life richer, and she is so dedicated to this mission that she is taking the message on the road. With the launch of The Ten, Schwartz is using some proven, yet expanded, methods to promote her artists and to put these artists' works in the hands of collectors for as little as $250 per print. The images from The Ten can not be collected anywhere else. Schwartz also promotes many women in her mission including the work of Kathleen Robbins, Lori Vrba, Elizabeth Fleming, Jennifer Shaw and Heidi Lender. The Kickstarter crowdfunding project is set to expire on December 1st and Schwartz needs all of the goal of $15,000 to start the project.
Find out more about Crusade for Collecting or to donate, visit the Kickstarter crowdfunding page, The Ten's website or for a bit more entertainment, visit Schwartz's blog.
There are still some great benefits still remaining as of today with your pledge of a certain dollar amount including a book and print by Jennifer Shaw (one left for $100 or more) and two one-of-a-kind 4x5 inch tintypes by Fritz Liedtke (one shown below).
