ARTisPHL Group 2

ARTisPHL Group 2

This Deadline Expired: Friday, April 29, 2022

The deadline to participate in ARTisPHL has been extended to Friday, April 29th at 4pm!

ARTisPHL is the new name for the competition for Philadelphia-based artists at all experience levels working in any medium. The project first launched in 2020 under a different name. ARTisPHL better reflects the mission and the long history of Philadelphia artists. ARTisPHL reminds us that ART is PHILLY and PHILLY is ART!

ARTisPHL is a competition for Philadelphia-based artists at all experience levels working in any medium. For Group 2 there will be three rounds, with awards at each round: Ideas, Impact, and Implementation. For this first round, they will be looking for ideas.

Public art enhances public space when it is accessible to and representative of the community where it resides. Exploring what engagement means, they hope to give a platform for new artist-led and community-focused creative ideas.

Up to 50 artists will each be awarded $1,000 for their ideas. These winning ideas will be shared on the city’s website and social media channels. Ideas may be in any medium but should consider how people can interact with the work. This project will foster, showcase, and amplify artists’ ideas about the evolving role of public art in Philadelphia.

ART IS ESSENTIAL PHL Group 1 launched in July of 2020 during a period of unprecedented unrest. The application heard from over 150 Philadelphia artists from around the city and 58 awards were distributed over three rounds. For this second group, the city hopes to reach, hear from, and support more artists working to shape and understand our new reality.

My life and my perceptions are the subjective drivers for the pictures I make. Making a painting is, for me, an exploratory process toward understanding, not an expository declaration of a position already held.

My work is primarily in oils and focuses on urban street scenes and still life settings made up of vintage housewares and toys.  I am interested in all things old as I believe they have the most interesting stories to tell.  Buildings and objects from the past both bring back memories for those who have previously interacted with them, and discovery to those seeing them for the first time.  I work in a contemporary realist style, looking to bring to attention the beautiful design elements that already exist in the subjects that I paint.
