$35. The application fee is non-refundable. It helps defray the costs of administering this grant so we can continue to support and fund artist’s creative projects.

This call is open to artists worldwide, both amateur and professional. Once an artist is awarded an Evolution Grant, they will not be eligible to apply again. 

Open to ALL fine art mediums (oil, acrylic, watermedia, pastel, drawing, printmaking, mixed media, photography, sculpture, fiber, wood, digital art) except video/film. There is no restriction on style, genre, or subject matter.

You will be asked to submit a body of work along with an artist statement and artist bio.
Applications are reviewed based on a body of work. This jury type allows artists to submit as many media samples as allowed, and all media are submitted into one application.​

Notification will be done by email, everyone who submits will be notified of their results. If, for any reason, you do not hear from us by Friday, August 6, 2021, please check the filters in your email account. Notification emails are sent to the email on file with CaFÉ.

By entering through CaFÉ, you agree to be added to Art Fluent's email list for upcoming artist opportunities. By submitting images, you agree that the images are your own work, you own all rights to the images, and take full responsibility for the content of all images, including the likeness of recognizable individuals. The actual artwork will remain the property of the artist. Our mission is to promote artists and their work. Upon grant distribution, you allow Art Fluent the right to reproduce your work on our website, social media, and where appropriate, to help promote further online opportunities.

About Our Artist Grant
