NEW YORK, Sept. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — ARTXPUZZLES today announces the one-year anniversary celebration with the launch of ARTXARTISTS, a new online OVR gallery designed exclusively for ARTXPUZZLES, presenting curated exhibitions and artists’ projects from all around the globe. ARTXPUZZLES initiative was originally conceived in September 2020 to support artists during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis through an online sale benefit of Collector Edition Jigsaw Puzzles and continues to expand the mission with new partnerships including ARTSY, Phillips Auction House and multiple art museum stores.
Organized by ARTXPUZZLES: PUZZLES WITH PURPOSE, this important one-year anniversary celebration takes an innovative approach with a new unique 3D experience. ARTXPUZZLES was created in 2020 in close collaboration with over 140 contemporary artists from across the globe supporting artist studios, existing wider artist relief efforts and causes of personal social and economic concern to participating artists. To that end, a percentage of all proceeds from sales of both artwork and AXP Collector Editions will directly benefit the artists’ chosen charities.
