It is such a joy to have a front-row view of what the Lord is doing in the lives of our neighbors in South Memphis, as well as in the lives of the many volunteers who make this work possible. Art for Jobs was just another rallying of the volunteer troops, numbering over 70 who committed over 330 hours in the planning and execution of the event. Read more

On behalf of the Advance Memphis team, thank you for attending Art for Jobs 2018! Your generosity with your time encourages us. The warehouse where you attended Art for Jobs (and hopefully purchased art) is the same warehouse where we had 13 graduates working last week. Monday, work will resume. Consider the Advance Memphis Warehouse and our hard working graduates as solutions to your business needs. You may not need outsourcing work performed for your company BUT you may know someone who does. Please share Advance Memphis as a business solution for labor, space, and project work! After almost 20 years, Advance Memphis still needs your support and involvement. Through purchasing art, you helped fund Advance Memphis. Finally, I hope you all got a little glimpse into our Creator through the talents of our artists!

ALL OF MORGAN’S WORK FOR ART FOR JOBS 2016 CAN BE SEEN IN THE ONLINE PREVIEW CATALOG.
“Many aspects of art interest Morgan. He doesn’t claim any one favorite medium, but his specialties include sculpture, ceramics and painting. Upon graduating, Morgan doesn’t anticipate that his degree will change his status as an artist.” This quote from The Daily Helmsman in 2014, written as Morgan was wrapping up his bachelor of art degree at age 72, captures Don’s wide interests and down to earth spirit.
Morgan has been represented locally by Perry Nicole, Harrington Brown, David Smith Gallery, and has several pieces in the LeBonheur collection.
“Christopher Nadaskay is the University Professor of Art at Union University and an artist focusing primarily on mixed-media, using a variety of materials and textures in his exploration of cultural critiques and societal legacies. As a self-proclaimed science-fiction fan, Nadaskay often incorporates aspects of the genre’s futuristic musings into his conviction-fueled paintings and sculptures.” Read the rest of the article by Joseph Smith in the Jackson Sun.
Chris is contributing for the second time to Art for Jobs and is preparing an early spring show of his work that will benefit Advance. The crosses seen at left are representative of a series of 1000 that he is creating, to be shown and sold at Crosstown.
A born and raised Memphian, Adam found his love of painting after attending a local paint your own canvas art event. Over the last five years, he has painted many pieces of art for friends, customers, and Memphis charities while creating his own unique and fun style. When not painting, Adam is an entertainer for the local NBA team, and his energy carries over from the arena to his art!
We are thrilled to have Adam Exelbierd contributing again this year and you won’t want to miss the series he’s contributed this year: the CORE 4! See more of Adam’s work on his website and learn more about Art for Jobs here or on our Facebook event page.
