Give with art - supporting Ukrainian relief

with Mark David Hatwood at The Harbour Gallery

'Watching the plight of the Ukrainians on the news has been humbling,' says Mark David Hatwood, contributor to The Artist and sponsor of our annual TALP Open art competition, of The Harbour Gallery and British Contemporary.Art . 'In my attempt to help in some way, I have created a Instagram page and Facebook page.

'The idea behind this is simple: if you wish to get involved, simply share any piece of art under the hashtag #givewithart and tag our account and we’ll promote it for you both on Instagram and the website. We ask that you pledge at least 50% of the sale (the gallery commission) to Ukrainian relief.

'There is also a new website,, where we will celebrate any sales you’ve had. Message Mark and the team on Instagram once your work has sold so we can post it for you. You will also find information on the charities we recommend you donate to and/or a bank account.

'Please spread the word. The more artists who pledge their support now, the more we can all show our solidarity with the people of Ukraine and try to make a small difference to their lives.

'Lastly, if you like, feel free to initially pledge your support to the project using the logo above right and share our hashtag/tags so we know you’re on board'.


The campaign has sold over £5,000 worth of art (over 30 artworks) in just 3 days!


I sold a painting in 10 minutes (!), all the money going to the Red Cross Ukraine appeal. It's an esy thing to do and I urge fellow artists to consider doing likewise. All praise to Mark David Hatwood for this initative.

Hi Sylvia - you need to share your work on Facebook or Instagram using the tage @givewithart and the hashtag #givewithart Mark will then pick these up and share too. If your work sells, let him know and he will add it to the website. There's a bit more info on his website too.

Would love to donate a painting……I’m a bit thick and don’t know how….helllllllp
