The pandemic has closed down almost all normal gallery openings and art shows for 2020. ARTPUSH decided to do a fundraiser this year that would benefit local artists, the community, and our organization. The book will showcase selected works by approximately 100 East Bay artists.

Pre-order your copy today! The books will be delivered in November with plenty of time for the holiday gift season.

Please keep in mind.

This is a labor of love.

  • ARTPUSH volunteers are donating hundreds of hours to this project.
  • The books themselves are expensive, about $15 each to print.
  • We have to pre-sell 70 books just to cover printing and shipping costs.
  • Book stores take half, so selling local retail for $35 we net $2.50 per book.
  • There are tons of shipping fees, credit card fees, administrative tasks, etc.

You will need to pre-order the book if you want to ensure you get a copy. We do not have the budget to purchase many copies and keep them “in-stock”. Depending on how presales go, we will probably order about 10 or 20 extra copies. Once they are gone, they are gone. If you pre-order you are guaranteed a copy at $25 + shipping. After pre-order, they will sell for $35.
