For 2013, Art for Jobs has partnered with local business Front Porch Art, led by Caitlin Horton. Front Porch Art is a laid-back online art market (with events and showings as well) that helps artists share their passion with the world and makes art accessible to everyone. The mission of Front Porch Art is to build a community of artists and art enthusiasts who want to learn about each other and support the endeavor of making art.
Front Porch Art recently hosted "Art for Squares," an opportunity for artists to create pieces on the theme "Summer in the South." with one size and one price. Pictured below are two pieces created by Front Porch artist John Sperry that will be available at Art for Jobs.

Page through this blog and you'll see several Front Porch Art artists, and there are many more. Visit their site to learn more about each of these artists from across the South and to, perhaps, purchase a great piece of your own. Caitlin Horton, Rebecca Phillips, and Dorothy Collier will be at Art for Jobs this Thursday, so please take a minute to learn more about their work. You'll be glad you did.
