Have you joined the Klub?
The SCAPE Art Klub is our dedicated space for how you can become part of SCAPE events and fundraising programmes: where you can be the first to hear about what we have going on throughout the year. This is also the place to see features on our amazing participating artists and purchase their works directly through our website.
The mission of the Klub is to be a go-to resource for our fundraising events and art sales. It is a gathering space for art lovers and artists alike and aims to support the artists featured in SCAPE’s Seasons and online store.
SCAPE Art Klub features artist profiles, works for sale, studio tours, art experiences and VIP events. Followers get the earliest word on what events are coming up throughout the year and works that are available to purchase. Proceeds from these events go to our artists and SCAPE’s free public art and education programmes.
