Nova Gallery - Open for Business
A new online gallery with a difference...
Nova Gallery, a new online gallery featuring limited edition, contemporary fine art photography from up-and-coming photographers launches today.
The philosophy behind the gallery is three-fold:
1) To help up-and-coming photographers gain some exposure and sell prints
2) Make contemporary photography more accessible and collectable
3) Utilise the power of photography as a catalyst for positive social change
And the difference? Nova prints will be available from just £19 + postage - making them accessible to everyone. In addition, for every photo that's sold, the Gallery will donate 10% of the sale price to a charitable cause.
Katherine Howells, Events and Corporate Fundraising Manager at the charity PhotoVoice, one of the charities which Nova Gallery are supporting says: "Photography has a significant role to play in inspiring people to make positive social change and can give a voice to those who would otherwise go unheard. We're delighted that Nova Gallery has chosen to support PhotoVoice and we look forward to exploring ways in which we can work together."
Three photographs will be on offer from the 16th. Three more photographs will be offered from July 7th. After the launch period a new photograph will be made available every two weeks. Each photograph is part of a limited edition exclusive to Nova and comes with a numbered certificate signed by the artist.
The first three featured photographers are:
Peter Baker - http://www.novagallery.co.uk/peter_baker.htm
Hin Chua - http://www.novagallery.co.uk/hin_chua.htm
Mark Wickens - http://www.novagallery.co.uk/mark_wickens.htm
Simon Courcha, Gallery Partner says: "At Nova we are passionate about contemporary photography. And we want to give everyone the chance to collect great prints. We've gone out of our way to persuade some fine photographers to share some of their best work - exclusively. We will offer a range of photographic styles, representing the best of up-and-coming contemporary art photography. All will be printed on quality media and most will be available in three sizes. All will be eminently collectable."
For up-to-date news Nova Gallery has a blog.
Print resolution copies of all featured photographs are available for editorial use.
The Nova Gallery maintains a mailing list.
The Nova partners are Andy Newson and Simon Courcha
