About the Art Initiative at the Gallery at Svenska

The Art Initiative at the Gallery at Svenska was created to provide a platform to both established as well as upcoming young artists to display their flair and creativity. The Gallery at Svenska does not charge the artists for their wall space nor do they keep a commission on the sale of their works. At the end of the allotted exhibition time however, a painting of the artist is retained which will then be sold via a celebrity auction, with the proceeds go to charity.
