Artists Sustaining Artists 2024

Transformer is proud to present the 2nd iteration of Artists Sustaining Artists, an initiative created with mid-career and established artists to provide honoraria support to their emerging artist peers. 

Led by Transformer Board Members and staff, selected artists who are sustained in their careers have been invited to donate an artwork that will be sold to support their emerging peer artists. All sale proceeds will support Transformer and the emerging artists the organization serves, with funds distributed to emerging artists in the form of artist honorariums. 

Artist Sustaining Artists 2024 artworks have been curated by Transformer Board Members Christopher Addison of Addison/Ripley, artist, curator and educator Jennifer Sakai, and artist and cultural producer Sheldon Scott, along with Transformer’s Executive & Artistic Director Victoria Reis, and Exhibitions & Programs Coordinator Camille DeSanto.

As Transformer begins its 22nd year of operations this June, vital funds raised through Artists Sustaining Artists art sales will help us to further grow emerging artists careers and make their visions come to life. Through the generous support of the participating artists, and those that purchase their donated artworks, this initiative provides a special way to have a direct impact in the support of artists.
