OpenSeas Auction Opens May 1st, 2021
For decades, artist Susan J. Barron’s work has been presented in galleries and museums. Now, her pieces have found a new home as digital files occupying crypto wallets. Starting April 2021, the artist will be listing a limited number of her works from the acclaimed “Depicting the Invisible” series onto NFT Marketplaces.
What the Hell is an NFT?
A non-fungible token (NFT) is a cryptocurrency stored on a digital ledger called a blockchain that certifies a digital asset, like a film or painting, to be one of a kind and not interchangeable. These NFT's are available at auction on the OpenSeas Marketplace.
“I’m excited to bring my series 'Depicting the Invisible' to a revolutionary new platform. These works are currently on exhibition at the Hunter Museum of American Art and The Nat’l Veterans Memorial & Museum. To me, NFT’s are an opportunity to bring my work to a whole new audience and to give back.” commented Barron.
With every purchase of an NFT listing, the artist will give back a portion to organizations supporting Veterans with PTSD, starting with Freedom Fighters Outdoors.
“Depicting the Invisible” is a portrait series of veterans suffering from PTSD. These breathtaking mixed media portraits shine a light on the epidemic of PTSD and suicide through a deeply personal lens. The works are layered with the veterans’ stories, laid bare in their own words. Through this project, Ms. Barron endeavors to breaks down the stigmas surrounding mental health, PTSD, and the #MeToo movement.
