Buy A Print From A Local Designer And Raise Money For Mental Health Support

19th November, 2020

‘With Solace’ brings together 23 local illustrators, typographers, photographers and designers to raise funds for ReachOut.

This year, we’ve all grown well-accustomed to the see-saw of emotional stability. But for those of us who are living with mental health complications, having a tough time isn’t just limited to 2020. Through this new initiative from digital design and branding studio, With You, we can all help extend the support network for those who need it!

With Solace’ is a group exhibition and art sale that brings together 23 local illustrators, typographers, photographers and designers to create new works inspired by daydreams. Commissioned to create one original artwork that would be reproduced as limited-run prints, local artists such as Beci Orpin, Claire Ritchie and Brooke Gossen all have donated works, which are now on display at COMA Gallery in Darlinghurst. Twenty prints of each artwork are available for purchase via the exhibition’s online store.

All proceeds from print sales will be donated to ReachOut, an organisation supporting young people experiencing mental health difficulties and their parents.
