CEL: Original artworks and limited edition prints now available online
Animate Projects is delighted to launch CEL, an online fundraising project to raise money to keep the Animate Collection - an essential resource of British experimental animation - alive online.
Artists previously commissioned by Animate have donated original images for limited edition prints, and original work, including drawings, watercolour, linocut, screen prints, and in one case, a promise.
Whatever #7 is from Simon Faithfullís Promise of a drawing series: on purchase, the buyer has permission to text the artist at a time and date they choose, and the artist will then create a digital drawing of whatever he sees in front of him.
Edwina Ashton has donated Mr Mammutís Egg Collection, an original pen and watercolour drawing which exemplifies her unique and delicate drawing style as seen in her first animated film, Mr Panz at Lake Leman, notes on m (notes on mammals and habitats), commissioned by Animate Projects and The Drawing Room.
Susan Collins has donated Fenlandia 5 July 2004, 18:43pm, a signed limited edition print from the Fenlandia project; exploring the relationship between landscape, time and technology through recording images at a pixel a second.
Other taking part in CEL include: Katerina Athanasopoulou, Suky Best, Sebastian Buerkner, Paul Bush, Ann Course, Petra Freeman, Oliver Harrison, Max Hattler, Elizabeth Hobbs, Stephen Irwin, Jo Ann Kaplan, Andrew and Eden Kotting, Carolina Melis, Emily Richardson, Hiraki Sawa, Chris Shepherd, Thomson & Craighead, and Run Wrake.
All proceeds will contribute to the direct costs of maintaining the Animate Collection and keeping animateprojects.org live over the next year.
Animate Projects is pleased to have a-n The Artists Information Company and VAGA, The Visual Arts & Galleries Association as media partners for CEL.
All CEL artworks are now available to purchase online from the Animate Projects Shop. Online donations can also be made via The Big Give.
We would like to thank the artists and everyone who purchases an artwork in advance for supporting Animate Projects in its fundraising aim to keep the Animate Collection online.
