An Atlanta art gallery is holding a sale this week of photography prints, in an attempt to not only help local artists, but also health care workers.
For each piece sold until April 24, Jackson Fine Art will donate 20% of the proceeds to the Team Grady Assistance Fund and the CDC's All of Us Combat Coronavirus Fund, according to the gallery's website.
"Your contribution will support our frontline healthcare heroes by providing meals and childcare assistance, funding medical supplies and increased lab capacity, supporting vulnerable communities, and other COVID-19 related needs," according to a post on the gallery's website.
The sale includes renowned photographers Cig Harvey, Mona Kuhn, Terri Loewenthal, Candida Hofer, Frank Thiel, Thomas Jackson and Bastiaan Woudt, according to the gallery.
However, as is usually the case in the world of fine art, the photographs will cost you: they are being sold for $2,500 each.

Hello! My name is Mona Kuhn, I am one of the artists represented by JFA and will be doing an IG takeover for a few days. ✨The moment this image was taken has a subtle similarity with ours now. I often think she could have been the very last one or the very first one again. To me, it is so beautiful and suspenseful at once! This image is part of my series “ She Disappeared into Complete Silence.” Featured at the gallery and ParisPhoto by @jacksonfineart ⚡️ #monakuhnstudio #jacksonfineart
Amid the coronavirus outbreak, professional and amateur artists alike have taken to artwork to spread messages of safety and encouragement.
Atlanta artist R. Land converted his iconic "Pray for ATL" design into "Wash for ATL" amid the outbreak. He has also teamed up with United Way of Greater Atlanta and Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta to help the organizations' COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund.
Local artist Greg Mike has used his platform to encourage people to wash their hands and keep their distance.
Mike's messages about safety measures amid coronavirus have been blasted on billboards throughout the city and on social media. But the high-resolution versions of his coronavirus designs are available for download on his website.
In Dunwoody, an arts center is now working with the artist behind the iconic "Everything Will Be OK" mural to sell yard signs and benefit struggling artists during the coronavirus pandemic
