Call for Artists | Art NEAR The Loop, Memphis TN

Applications close June 3, 2022 

September 30 to October 2 – ArtWorks Foundation’s autumn sequel to our highly praised spring festival, Art in The Loop. Response by artists and the public has been so positive, we are launching a new fall edition: Art NEAR The Loop: right around the corner from – and within sight of – our spring site…in one of Memphis most affluent neighborhoods, convenient to hotels & shopping.  Also, this is not exactly a first-time show: we staged our delayed spring 2020 event during the fall. Here’s what Yvonne Miller, Mixed Media Artist Atlanta GA, had to say about her experience at our first, unintentional fall show in 2020, “…one of the best (shows) to participate in for being the most thoughtful, and on top of that, one of the most profitable! This is a magic unicorn show!”
