Art4Barter: Artists Exchange Art for Services and Goods, not Money
Tria Gallery has generously donated their empty space for this 7th exhibition of Art4Barter.
NEW YORK, NY.- Bartering may be the answer to bail us out of our current crisis. Although artists have historically been bartering as much as possible it is more relevant now than ever before. It can provide a solution to survival for so many of us and create a new vision for society.

The artists that are participating are all professional artists, and will present their works for barter. No works shall be sold for money but rather for services and goods. The exact service or good that the artist requires will be on the label next to their art. For example, if an artist were to ask for dental work or other medical procedures in exchange for their art, or for a studio to work in, etc., it will give the community an opportunity to barter for those items that are missing from the artists’ lives. The irony is that art is missing from the lives of many people too because it is treated as a luxury item and not as an essential part of our lives. This system will not only inspire people to trade with artists, musicians, writers, dancers, and other creative minds, it will also make society less judgmental about valuing different services. When this becomes the norm, bartering will be a respectable activity and will create relationships between people from different trades.

Society will be able to provide opportunities to artists that were inconceivable before this. In addition to being one of the greatest human events in the beginning of the new millennium, we are also expressing a change that the rest of humanity can participate in. By creating a vision of a new cultural standard, whereby people can get through hard financial times by participating in a win-win situation. This idea can spread to people from all societies of the world. The development of this project relies on the support from venues that can connect artists with members in the community that are able to fill the needs of the artists. Tria Gallery has generously donated their empty space for this 7th exhibition of Art4Barter.

Participating Artists: Amina Ahmed, Erica Brown, Donald E. Camp, Niyeti Chadha, Anjali Deshmukh, Vijay Kumar, Joseph Kupillas, Quentin Morris, Avani Patel, James Prez, Varsha Rambarassah, David Stephens, Jay Varma, and Brett Walker.

Show goes from August 27th through August 29th
Gallery hours: 12 to 6 pm.
