What is the ArtWorks V² Gallery Program?

The ArtWorks V² Gallery Program allows teen and young adult artists (ages 16-24) to study the materials and methods of outstanding Artists to inform the creation of their own unique and individual works of art. Programs culminate in a cohesive group exhibit with all works for sale and proceeds going directly to the participating Artists. This is a free educational program with all art-making supplies provided.

Who should apply?

This opportunity is available to Artists ages 16 – 24.

What is the cost?

Because of the generosity of ArtWorks supporters, participation in this program is free, and all participants will be supplied with materials.

Is this a paid opportunity?

To be clear, this is not a paid position. Instead, it is a free educational program culminating in a group exhibit where participants have the opportunity to earn money from the sale of art they create while participating in the ArtWorks V² Gallery Program. ArtWorks will take a 10% commission fee for any work sold, but the remaining 90% of revenue from the sale will go directly to the artist who created the piece.

What are the benefits of the ArtWorks V² Gallery Program?

Participants in the ArtWorks V² Gallery Program will study the materials and methods of outstanding artists in a small educational setting that encourages collaboration and artistic experimentation. Using materials and time in the studio provided for free, participants will create their own unique and individual works of art which they have the opportunity to sell during their exhibition in the ArtWorks V² Gallery. Participants will also learn foundational skills about gallery exhibitions from local curators and museum partners, including how to effectively represent their art through artist statements, gallery talks, opening events, and community events.
