Pay What You Can pop-up by Victoria van der Laan

Pop up exhibition featuring over 50 stretched patchwork pieces, all offered for purchase with the pay what you can model.

The event will take place on Friday, December 1 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. alongside the opening for Albany Center Gallery's annual Members' Show and will resume the following day, Saturday, December 2 from noon to 5 p.m.. Enter through Albany Center Gallery; Art.Work.Space. is right across the hall.

During the exhibit folks are welcome to submit offers of any amount that works for them for any of the pieces they love. At the end of the exhibit Victoria will randomly choose a recipient for each piece and contact each person to arrange for payment and pick up or shipment of work.

Victoria wrote "My goal with this project is to promote equitable access to art and to cultivate a spirit of generosity. An in-person, fully pay what you can exhibition of my work has been a dream since I first began my weekly PWYC project on Instagram in early 2021 and I am so excited to see that dream come true. I hope you will come join me!"

This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrants Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by The Arts Center of the Capital Region.
