Gute has created specially commissioned projects for print publications such as Frieze, Flash Art, ArtLies, and Fillip. He has been awarded fellowships from the Rockefeller Foundation, the San Francisco Foundation, and the MacDowell Colony. Gute lives in New York and is represented by Catharine Clark Gallery.
Sales from the artist-print masks fund mask donations to groups who need them. After donating a batch of 300-400 masks we sell a batch of 300-400 mask and repeat as needed.
We expect current orders will ship in about 5 days from order, but it may take longer. First ordered first shipped. If you want to cancel before they ship just email us. No cancelling, refunds, returns or exchanges after shipment.
- Made from two layers of a tight weave 100% cotton.
- Size info and photos here.
- Masks are steam ironed before mailing. Please wash and dry them before using, and wash and dry, or thoroughly steam iron them between uses. Print will fade with repeated washing. We recommend washing masks in a mesh bag as you would wash delicates, or hanging to dry to prolong the lifespan as the elastic straps can get caught in washing machines.
- Masks have a wire nose bridge which helps keep the top part of the mask snug to the nose. Adjust this by gently bending the wire to fit your face/nose.
