Art for Jobs Artist Information

 

Join featured artists Beth Winterburn, Carl Scott, and Claudia Tullos – Leonard partnering with Advance Memphis to help empower neighbors in South Memphis to find work and become financially stable! Please complete the  2020 Artist Submission Form to contribute artwork.

What You Need to Know

Virtual Gallery Images Deadline (NEW INFORMATION!)
We need all images of your artwork submissions by August 28th in order to be included in our virtual gallery this year. We are reimagining Art for Jobs in light of COVID-19 this year, and we are carefully monitoring the situation to determine what it may look like to safely gather at our warehouse. 


Art Drop Off Deadline

All art must be dropped off to our office at 769 Vance Avenue by
September 11, 2020. All images of your artwork must be submitted by August 28th in order to be included in our virtual gallery. You can upload your artwork images with your Artwork Submission Form, or you can email them to artforjobs@advancemenphis.org.

 

Artist Submission Form
Please submit your
Artist Submission Form here by September 11, 2020. You may submit your Artist Registration Form prior to dropping off your art. This year we are asking artists to submit images of their artwork submissions along with the Artist Registration Form.



Artist Split
We value your art donations! Art for Jobs also offers an artist split, up to 50%. If you choose to take advantage of the artist split, please indicate your desired percentage on the
Artist Submission Form.

 

Art Submission Limit
Each artist can submit up to three pieces of artwork (with the exception of featured artists). There is no size limit however, artwork that fits best in an average home often sells best. A diptych or triptych each count as one submission as long as they are titled and sold as one piece. 

 

Art Pickup After the Event
Unsold art can be retrieved from our 575 Suzette Warehouse the day after the event (9:00 am – 5:00 pm). All artwork must be picked up no later than
October 9, unless you gifted artwork to Advance Memphis. Contact Kelsey (901)543-8525 ext. 22 to coordinate art pickup due to our various locations.
