Step Out Buffalo x Artists Merch

Step Out Buffalo & WNY Artists are teaming up to bring you a new limited edition, Buffalo-born design benefiting a different local charity each month.

October’s collaboration features Eat Off Art (Alexa & Edreys Wajed), a multi-dimensional agency, platform and affirmation all-in-one, providing transformative experiences through creativity, food and art, with one third of the proceeds benefiting WNY non-profit UPward Design For Life, an organization that furnishes homes and transforms lives for those in need. 

Our October design, titled “We Got This” speaks volumes to many people during various times. 

A positive affirmation during unprecedented times. Encouragement, Togetherness and Strength in three words “We Got This”. 

Many people are experiencing loss, pain, and tragedy as well as successes, celebrations and strides. As we roll into this holiday season and prepare for more times of uncertainty while maintaining our mental health, our message and affirmation is “We Got This!”

The nonprofit, UPward Design for Life, that is being highlighted this month aims to offer a hand up, not a hand out, in furnishing homes to improve lives and embody the affirmation “We Got This”; because it takes a village.

 

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Remember, you have just one month to get these limited edition designs, so don’t forget to place your orders by October 31, 2020.

Profits from the October merch campaign will be split evenly between our charity of the month, UPward Design For Life; this month’s design partner, Eat Off Art; and Step Out Buffalo, the small local business behind the project. All merch sold will be printed by local printer Covered Wagon Promotions in Lancaster, NY. 

Don’t forget to post photos of your new gear as soon as you get it and tag @stepoutbuffalo, @eatoffart, @upwarddesignforlife and #stepoutbuffaloXartists!

 

ARTIST BIO  |   EAT OFF ART (Alexa & Edreys Wajed)

Eat Off Art is a multi-dimensional agency, platform and affirmation all-in-one, providing transformative experiences through creativity, food and art. Eat Off Art began as a mantra to counter the adage of the “starving artist.”

“We are a family owned and family run small business based in Buffalo, NY. A husband and wife tandem, both from a lineage of brilliant-minded thinkers, tinkerers, artists and craftsmen, driven to continue a legacy of creativity.”

Alexa and Edreys owned a greeting card and stationery design company for almost 20 years which enabled them to open a brick and mortar gallery, Gallery 51 on Elmwood Avenue in the early 2000s, one of the few black-owned businesses on the strip at the time. 

The creative couple have created an online platform titled “Eat Off Art”, where they continue their legacy of creativity and positive expression. Eat Off Art came about after pondering the cliche, “Starving Artists,” which is so widely accepted by many, even artists themselves. With that, we decided to entertain the notion of making a living and thriving from art, eating off the fruits of our efforts, hence, Eat Off Art.

“Our main intent is to inspire others through our crafts, passions and endeavors to believe that there is a way to be successful, sustainable and profitable as artists, especially married artists, with creative children in tow.”

Eat Off Art services include:

  • Creative problem solving and consulting for consumers and business owners
  • Illustration, graphic design and logo development
  • Project management
  • Licensed cooking demonstration, culinary classes and consulting
  • Jewelry design and manufacturing
  • Broad range of visual arts services and products
