$1000.00 Working Artist Grant/Art Purchase Award

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.

The Working Artist Grant/Art Purchase Award is available to all domestic and international artists working in all media including traditional visual arts, painting, sculpture, mixed media, photography, video, new media, and performance. We regret that we do not accept submissions for 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 into our collection, in return for our award. Please send us your best work for review. Work available for acquisition can be negotiated upon receipt of the award. We do pay the artist's shipping costs.

If you are interested in being considered for our award, please send us either 5 digital images/files of recent work, (total mail size no larger than 2 MB please), or a link to a website/links to video/multimedia, via email. No written proposals or CV's are required unless the artist would like to include them. Instead, please simply include in the body of your email current contact information, and send to: There is no application form.

There is an application review fee of $25.00, payable here:
which helps offset the costs of this effort to fund meaningful work by serious artists.

Award recipients agree by submitting their completed application to limited use of their images or other representation of their artwork and general information to be featured on this site and corresponding promotional media. All rights will be retained by the artists.

Submissions for the next deadline of the Working Artist Grant/Art Purchase Award must be submitted by midnight of August 31, 2015. We notify all participants of the results and we invite you to sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Facebook. Thank you for your interest. It is our pleasure to spend time with your work.
