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:

Gestural lines, fragmented patterns and assorted textures are the threads of my work which create a space for the confluence of memory, time and place.  The overarching theme of my work is a narrative drawn from personal history, my meditation and spiritual practice, community engagement and interest in the mysteries of the Universe.
