Sage posted this on Facebook yesterday. It breaks my heart to see him harmed like this. He is holding an art sale to try and recover from this heinous affront on his life, his joy and his artistic legacy.
While it is amazing that he has produced such a large body of work he should not have to sell it off just to get back the tools of his profession and other items stolen from him during this robbery.
He needs to be made right so he can pick up where he was before he was robbed. He also needs a cloud account to digitally store all of his work going forward a good security system to discourage this from happening again.
Sage is too humble to ask for financial help and has only asked for help by way of selling his amazing art as he has stated below.
However, I feel he really deserves to be made whole financially and emotionally from this ordeal so I created this gofundme page for him. Please see his incredible art on instagram @sagegallon and become a collector of his incredible art if you aren't one already and add to your collection if you are.
Dearest Friends, Family and Collectors,
As some of you may know, my apartment was burglarized Tuesday, 10/17/17 somewhere between 7pm-12am. The thieves managed to steal all of my computers, including two Macs and my Mac book pro, they stole all of my Cameras and lenses, my Sony a7s, Canon Mark II 5D and more... all of them. They also stole every one of my Hard Drives that contained all of my Work... everything from my Music (Naked Under My Clothes) to my Short Films and Music Videos, they stole ALL of the raw files of my Photography as well.
However, this violation has placed me in a position I have never been in before, everything I have worked for, struggled to build, to create, everything I have sacrificed for in the last three years is gone. I however can not and will not allow these criminals to stop me or give them the power to defer my Dreams, Goals or aspirations. I have already started to rebuild. I was able to purchase a new laptop just the other day.
Those of you who know me know how hard it is for me to ask for help. So... I need your help to rebuild what was stolen. I can not ask for money or even donations, I would feel very uncomfortable doing so, what I will ask though is that each of you look through the Art Work I am attaching to this letter (they didn’t damage my Paintings THANK GOD) and look through my Instagram page @Sagegallon, if anything touches you, please contact me about purchase. These thieves have stolen tens of thousands in equipment, it’s going to take some time to rebuild. But they didn’t know that I have a lot of people who love and support me and my work.
From my HEART, I thank you and love you all. Thank you for your emails, calls and prayers.
