COVID-19 has caught everyone by surprise, and the art industry is not exempted from this. After more than four months, the global art world, with exhibitions and galleries, is still under severe restrictions. Truly, the impact of COVID-19 cannot be understated and the artists are among those that were heavily burdened by the circumstances brought about by this pandemic. Responding to their call for help, ArtisteSpace, Inc., together with Arth Art International in India, officially launched Art CARES to raise funds and support the artists’ communities.

A collaboration of artists from India, Malaysia, Philippines, and the United States, Art CARES gallery provides a platform for emerging and distinguished artists to showcase their art pieces online. While they continue to inspire and shed hope through art, these artists also hope to sustain their livelihood and provide help to those who are most vulnerable.
