About our Juried Artist Market

The RiverArtsFest Artist Market is dedicated to providing a vibrant marketplace for original handcrafted works of fine art produced by local, regional and nationally recognized artisans. Last year, we received more than 450 applications from artisans across the nation and accepted more than 170 to feature their works. 

Works on display in the market range from the traditional to the contemporary, and include paintings in watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel, and mixed media; drawings; photographs; woodcuts, intaglio, and other print techniques; collage; weaving and other fabric works; ceramics; basketry; woodworking; jewelry; glass sculptures; and works in beveled glass. Each work is an original piece of art.

Featuring nearly 180 fine artists from across the nation, Memphis, and the Mid-South, booths display original works for sale will line Riverside Drive from Jefferson to Union.

During the festival, awards will be given for best in category and show. Check out our 2017, 2016 & 2015 Winners.
