The website and store were founded to help artists and art spaces connect to new markets and support the causes closest to them.
PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, USA, July 21, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — LocalGood – the website and online store created to connect independent artists with patrons who value their craft and dedication – is proud to reveal its community and initial partnership with 15 artists from across the United States.
The site was created and launched during the pandemic to provide independent artisans with additional income by selling their work on LocalGood’s online store, as well as collecting donations for local causes. The site is open to all artists no matter where they are in their journey and allows them to share a portion of the profits with a charity of their choice. The current cohort includes sculptors, potters, painters, photographers, and jewelers from cities across the United States.
In addition to providing an e-commerce platform for its artists, LocalGood creates social media content to promote their work and make announcements about their physical appearances. The LocalGood blog creates a space for socially conscious customers and supporters to get to know artists better and learn about the shows, art festivals or stores they work with.
Desiree Vuocolo, founder of LocalGood, is a single mother who works full-time in the healthcare field and has always been drawn to the world of art. The platform is a passion project for Vuocolo, driven to share her enthusiasm for discovering hidden artistic treasures and uplifting under-sung artists.
“I started to come up with a plan and discussed the idea with colleagues and friends around creating something that would help local artists. To my surprise, I received immediate support and excited and the idea became LocalGood,” explained Vuocolo.
“I am extremely grateful to everyone who helped me get this project off the ground, to those who provided their services for free, and of course to our wonderful artists who make LocalGood a special place,” she added. .
