They can’t do it alone and you can help… POP International Galleries is pleased to present a group of talented artists in a very special online GROUP CHARITY EXHIBITION aptly titled “Collect For Cause”….Countless numbers of people who are food insecure, are sadly and disproportionately affected by Covid-19. “Collect For Cause” – along with the generosity of the artists represented – will support and protect those experiencing hardship and hunger by donating 20% of all sales from this remarkable exhibition to the astonishing organization, FEEDING AMERICA.

Below is the list of participating artists for the “Collect for Cause” exhibition:

  • Al Diaz
  • Antonio Reonegro

  • Craig Alan

Mark your calendars, grab what’s left of the stimulus money, and get ready to help feed those in need.
