About our Juried Artists 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 here in Memphis. 

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.

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