Give Hope to the Arts
Hearts of Hope started as "Charity Hearts" - a project SALAZAR started to create art to donate to local charities for their silent auctions. Months later, COVID-19 Pandemic hit and SALAZAR and his art galleries were closed for quarantine. SALAZAR never expected that his art business would itself become the charity in need of support.
SALAZAR never lost HOPE and he painted hearts day and night during quarantine - as a meditative practice to fill each canvas with LOVE and HOPE. He poured all his passion and LOVE into each canvas and you can see the flow and movement on each work. His heart paintings have indeed brought much HOPE to collectors across the United States during COVID-19 and each painting you purchase will support Alexander Salazar Fine Art in San Diego and Houston Art Advisory in Houston, Texas.
Nationwide - Hearts of Hope by SALAZAR have been displayed in windows to show the world that LOVE AND HOPE AND UNITY will get us through this pandemic.
Hearts of Hope by SALAZAR will be reminders of how we survived COVID-19. Every time you look at a Heart of Hope by SALAZAR - you will remember how YOU helped KEEP ART ALIVE DURING COVID-19.
