Abel Arts Collective

Artist Spearheads Youth Art & Environmental Education Program



Artist: Erik Abel
Funds Raised: $1000
Nonprofits: Save the Waves & Sustainable Coastlines HI

Through their nonprofit arm, the Abel Arts Collective partnered with Sustainable Coastlines HI and Pangea Seed to create a youth art and environmental education program. They held an art fundraiser at the Wyland Gallery in Haleiwa where Abel and partner artists donated 100% of sales from original artwork and prints to the project. Total donations were split between partner nonprofits and to cover expenses of the project, raising $500 each for Sustainable Coastlines HI and Pangea Seed.

We're going to interupt our regular schedule of stories of how artists have been using their art to benefit others to step back and bring a bit more inspiration to the table. AidCurrent artist Erik Abel, along with his "office manager/bookkeeper/marketing director/wife" Nellie Abel have taken artistic altruism a step further than most of us. Yes, Erik donates a significant amount of work to organizations and projects that he believes in, but seeing the potential to do more than simply donate, in 2014 they took on the daunting task of forming a nonprofit arm of their own to enable them to weave giving & conscious activism into the very fabric of Erik's business model as a professional artist. 

We're stoked to introduce to you the Abel Arts Collective
