Working Artist
Deadline: 4/30/2021, 11:59 PM

The Working Artist Grant/Art Purchase Award is a meager one-time art award intended to disperse small but vitalizing bursts of funding to support an artist’s ongoing art making process. This award is available to all artists, working in all traditional and new visual arts mediums, including but not limited to: conceptual, installation, drawing, painting, prints, sculpture, glass, mixed media, new media, photography and video. We regret that we do not accept submissions for music, performance or dance.

If selected as our winner, we ask that the award recipient be willing to exchange one of their original works or smaller series of original works for inclusion in our collection, in return for our award. Work considered by the artist as of equal value, and available for acquisition can be negotiated upon receipt of the award. We do pay the artist’s shipping costs. Please send us your best work for review.

To enter, you can send a link to your website or 5 images (each under 1 mb), along with your name and contact information¬†to:¬†grant@workingartist.org. No written proposals or CV’s are required unless the artist would like to include them. There is no application form, but there is a submission review fee of $25. Find the full guidelines here.
