NEW CURATED ONLINE PLATFORM FOR LIMITED EDITIONS BY ESTABLISHED & EMERGING WOMEN ARTISTS, HER CLIQUE, WILL LAUNCH SEPTEMBER 15, 2020
HER CLIQUE TO DEBUT WITH NEWLY COMMISSIONED EDITIONS OF WORKS BY ZOË BUCKMAN
A new online art platform established to promote and offer works by artists who identify as women, Her Clique will debut September 15, 2020, with a sale of limited edition artworks by Zoë Buckman. Her Clique’s mission is to promote women artists, to make fine art more affordable and more accessible, and to support vital non-profit organizations. The platform will introduce monthly artist collaborations where specially created limited edition works will be featured at approachable price points. A portion of the proceeds from each sale will benefit various nonprofit organizations, with the first beneficiary to be United Way NYC, an organization helping low-income New Yorkers make ends meet and lead self-sufficient lives.
With a nod to re-appropriating the term “clique” often associated with an unapproachable and exclusive group, Her Clique aims to become an inclusive hub. Each artist collaboration will feature a commissioned edition of works, with a new artist, added every month. This year’s artists will include Zoë Buckman, Natalie Frank, and Alonsa Guevara, among others. The website will also publish Her Clique Stories – a video series profiling artists whose works are offered on the site.
" I’m honored to be the debut artist of this collaboration
with a platform that champions women artists while also raising funds for United Way NYC "
Her Clique’s debut sale this September will feature two editions of textile works by Zoë Buckman, who is known for her multimedia work in textile, sculpture, neon, and photography, and who in her work investigates topics including feminism, sexuality, and cultural norms. Buckman’s first edition on Her Clique will feature an approachable priced collection of 75 handkerchiefs embroidered with an excerpt from a poem by the artist with each piece crafted on a unique, vintage fabric; the second offering will be a short edition of 3 larger works, vintage table runners, presenting the excerpt in full.
