The Working Artist Grant/Art Purchase Award is a one-time $1000 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 worldwide, 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.
