Open Call for Artists: Furnished for Good 2022

Open Call for Artists: Furnished for Good 2022

This Deadline Expired: Thursday, September 30, 2021

Furnished for Good is Pathways to Housing PA’s signature fundraising event. Chosen artists will take inspiration from the Philadelphia Furniture Bank (PFB) and turn it into a work of art, and the pieces will be auctioned at Furnished for Good in Spring 2022 to help raise funds for operations at PFB.

They are looking for artists who want to choose a piece of furniture to refinish, AND artists who want to create an original piece inspired by PFB. 

They’re putting out this open call to artists who are interested, and their guest curators Damon Reaves and Lawren Alice will choose 15-20 artists to participate that show a diverse range of mediums and styles. Artists of all experience levels are invited to respond! Photos of last year’s chairs, and the event itself, can be found here.

Each artist will receive a $200 stipend to cover the cost of supplies, as well complimentary registration for the event and recognition/promotion via social media and local press outlets. 

The timeline for the project is as follows:

The intentional physicality of my paintings is as much a result of my dialogue throughout the process as it is the means with which I invite viewers to experience the work viscerally. Iconography may be the entry point for viewers, but the essence of the elements and ambiguity demand individual interaction with each painting. Layering is both revealing and concealing, creating a balanced tension and suspension which is really what painting is for me. I use the elements to speak for me and I wish to open doors to new dialogue within and between viewers.
