Overview

The eighth annual “V&E Artwalk” will raise money and awareness for the V&E Greenline community owned trail which travels through the heart of Midtown and the Vollintine Evergreen Community. The event will feature the work of artists from all over the Greater Memphis area.

This will be a large family event that is an annual occurrence in the Midtown area. It will not only raise awareness about sustaining the V&E Greenline as an important Memphis and neighborhood asset, but also provide an outlet for local artists to gain exposure and highlight the thriving art community which exists here in the Memphis area. Artists will be selling their creations at affordable prices. There will be a silent auction from items donated by the artists. Award-winning art from neighborhood elementary and middle school students will be on display. A children's area will include creative activities and bounce houses. Music by local artists will be a special treat. Several types of craft beer from a Memphis micro brewery, along with a variety of wines will be available. 

The food will include grilled sausages, delicious side items, walking tacos, barbecue smoked for this event, hot dogs and hamburgers, and plenty of vegetarian options.

We expect 70 booths and many, many people from both surrounding neighborhoods and throughout the metropolitan area.

All proceeds from the event will go to the V&E Greenline to keep the V&E Greenline attractive and useful for all to enjoy.

Artists

NOTE TO ARTISTS: WE ARE NOW WAITLISTING BOOTH SPACE.  PLEASE EMAIL US BEFORE SUBMITTING APPLICATIONS OR PAYMENTS

The V&E Artwalk is being held on Saturday April 13 (rain date of April 14) from 11:00 to 6:00 at 1625 Tutwiler Ave.  Set up is from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM.

Artists displaying and selling their work are our most important asset.  We have kept the cost low to the artists with an affordable $45 fee and the donation of one piece to the Silent Auction.  If you MUST have access to electricity there will be an additional $15 added to the booth fee. Therefore you will pay $60 for your space.

Here is what you do:  

  • Review the information in the Artist Application, fill out the application and release statement, pay the booth fee by check paid to the order of “V&E Artwalk Booth”, and mail to 1680 Jackson Ave 38107. Instead of mailing you can leave the application with a check in the MAIL SLOT, a few yards right of the front double doors, at 1680 Jackson.

  • Or, click the following link to download the Artist Application in Word or PDF and then email it back to veartwalk@gmail.com. NOTE: If the document does not appear in a new tab or browser window, check the “downloads” folder on your computer. Contact Jan Kirby at veartwalk@gmail.com if you’re having trouble with the form.

  • You can pay the booth fee by going to the "Donate" button below and pay the fee via PayPal (Please write “Artwalk booth fee” in the "special instructions to the seller" field).

 Silent Auction pieces can be brought the day of the event. Once the Artwalk gets closer, we will be assigning sites and will let you know more about the check-in process.  Volunteers will also be available the morning of the event to help move materials to your booth.

If you have any questions, please contact us by email at veartwalk@gmail.com, by mail to 1680 Jackson Ave 38107, and by phone at 901-276-1782 (the office is not open daily so it could be a few days before someone returns your call).
 

SPONSORS

Sponsors are indispensable to the Artwalk. The V&E Artwalk was conceived as an event that would raise funds for the community owned V&E Greenline, hold a fun event that attracted people from the adjacent neighborhoods and beyond, and expose people to the benefits of using the V&E Greenline for their personal health. Booth fees and beverage and food sales account for a portion of the expenses of the Artwalk. However, sponsors make it possible to pay the many additional expenses of putting on the event. Proceeds from the Artwalk will go into the Emergency Fund for unexpected disasters such as major damage to infrastructure. Keeping the V&E Greenline attractive and useful for all to enjoy is a way to pay back the hundreds of hours Artwalk volunteers spend in planning and putting on the event.

Sponsorships are available at $250 (Bronze level), $500 (Silver level), $1,000 (Gold level), and $2,000 (Platinum level). If interested in being a sponsor for the eighth annual Artwalk in 2019, please contact the V&E Artwalk for more information by email at VEgreenline@gmail.com, by mail to 1680 Jackson Ave 38107, or by phone at 901-276-1782 (the office is not open daily so it could be a few days before someone returns your call).
