About this project

Project Sketchbook is an annual mail-art project that engages artists and non-artists locally and nationally hosted by Rozelle Artists Guild. We mail each artist a small, handmade, 12-page sketchbook to fill with whatever he or she deems noteworthy. The returned sketchbooks are compiled into a professionally printed catalogue, and featured in an exhibition.

Rozelle Artists Guild strives to host events and plan projects that in some way benefit Memphis, its art scene, and the artists that keep it moving. We are proud to be working artists in Memphis striving to cultivate a sense of community among other local creatives.

Because the project is unjuried, and not only limited to artists, we receive a broad range of submissions, from illustration, painting, and collage, to writing and sculpture. Project Sketchbook offers anyone who gets involved a great addition to their CV and portfolio. For many of our participants in last year’s Project Sketchbook, it was the first time they had been featured in a gallery exhibition or been published.

In preparation for the second annual Project Sketchbook, we have prepared a budget based on last year’s expenses. We estimate the entire project, including sketchbook materials, mailing supplies & postage, venue rental & exhibition costs, and catalogue printing costs can be accommodated with no less than $1,500.

That’s where you come in.

Get a sketchbook to fill up & enter! Just $1 to enter.
