Art Market Gallery of Knoxville Seeks New Members
The next jury for Art Market Gallery membership will be held Sunday, March 22nd 2020.
Currently the gallery is accepting applications from artists in 2D and 3D media . Applicants may submit work in: clay, porcelain, fiber, glass, metal, wood, natural materials, 3D mixed media, sculpture, 3D paper arts, jewelry, and 2D mixed media, painting, drawing, print makers and photography.
You may only apply in one medium per jury. All works must be the original work of the artist and should be representative of the quality and nature of the art the applicant intends to exhibit at the Gallery. You are encouraged to visit the Gallery to see the quality and presentation of the art.
Please deliver your application documents, fee and four artwork pieces in a single medium between the hours of 11 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. from Tuesday, March 17th through Saturday, March 21st. Jurying will take place on Sunday, March 22nd and results will be mailed on Monday, March 23rd. .
A panel of 6 active members of the Art Market Gallery will evaluate your work in each of four categories: technical skill, design, artistic style, and presentation. Consideration will also be given to the current needs of the Gallery. We have painters and clay, fiber, glass, jewelry, photography, and wood artists, so we are looking for art that will complement but not duplicate our current artists’ work. Again, you are encouraged to visit the gallery to consider how your work would augment the Gallery.
If you are not juried into the gallery, please pick up your artwork NO LATER than Sunday March 29th.
Applicants, whose work is accepted, will be contacted to schedule a compulsory interview by a panel of two to three active gallery members. This required interview
offers an opportunity for the applicant, as well as, the panel to ask questions to ensure that the applicant understands the commitment of joining our cooperative gallery. These applicants may pick up their work after the jurying, during the interview, or may leave the pieces at the Gallery to be signed in during the orientation session. New members will be contacted to schedule an orientation session and additional work may be brought to orientation for processing. Work processed during orientation will be put on display.
