Open Call for the Artists Marketplace™

by | May 6, 2024 | News | 0 comments

Artists are invited, and encouraged, to apply for consideration to have your artwork featured in the Foundation’s Artists Marketplace™. The Artists Marketplace™ is the Foundation’s premier online gallery featuring works of art from artists in our community. The marketplace has been up-and-running since June 2021. Collectors, art patrons, Foundation leaders, and others occasionally search the site for their next purchase.

We hear from artists that it is challenging to get one’s work in front of a larger audience. Our intent is to showcase works of art from more artists in our community from across the world and to connect artists with buyers.

To have one’s artwork considered for the Artists Marketplace™, simply submit an email to: artistsmarketplace@darrylchappellfoundation.org with the following information:

1. Brief cover letter introducing yourself and address three questions:

a) Explain how your artistic practice aligns with the mission, vision, and values of the Foundation

b) How do you believe you will benefit from having your artwork featured in the Artists Marketplace

c) Briefly describe your professional goals and how you believe what the Foundation does helps you achieve moving closer
to your goals?

2. C.V. or Resume

3. Artist Statement

4. Profile Photo

5. Three to Five works of art for the Artists Marketplace (include images of each of the works of art, name of artwork, size of work in inches, price of work in USD, year work was made)

All complete applications will be reviewed by a jury of curators, artist, and Foundation leadership. A response will be provided to each applicant who submits a complete application.

Complete applications must be submitted by Friday, May 3, at 11:59pm. Only complete applications submitted by that date will be considered.

A Question & Answer session was held on Thursday, February 15, 2024.
