Student art Gallery
Elizabeth Eiten / Rhode Island School of Design

contributor: Indigo Jones

A site that provides a forum for emerging student artists to showcase their work, and has a philanthropic twist? Count us in!!

We love the Student Art Gallery, launched last June by two Arizona entrepreneurs, Jeff Skoglind, and Danny Wojtenowski.

Their mission is simple: to bring art to the forefront and support it’s evolution, while giving exposure to student artists and providing a means to sell their work.  Did we mention that a contribution from each sale is gifted back to the artist’s school?

Currently, the site features a highly curated selection of 150 pieces, but the founders hope to represent 1500 works by the fall.
It’s a great way to support the future careers of up and coming artists, find affordable artwork, and help fund the arts programs while you shop. What’s not to love?

Check it out!
