The Next Generation Studio Fellowship provides support for a promising contemporary emerging visual artist. The fellowship includes mentorship, a studio residency of one year, a solo exhibition, opportunities to share and exchange with the public through teaching, workshops, open studio visits, artist talks, and a community of artist peers. The mentor will assist the Fellow with the development of creative and professional goals, access to resources and services, navigation of local artist opportunities for the exposure of the fellow’s work, and exchange of ideas. Currently Fellows are selected through nomination and invitation only.
The Next Generation and Sanctuary Studio Fellowships are bi-annual programs that alternate from year to year.
The Next Generation Fellow joins a community of artist peers who are part of the VisArts Studio Artist Program. The program provides individual artists or collaborative artist teams with opportunities for creative exploration, professional development, public exchange, and critical dialogue in a supportive studio environment. The program is based on generosity, respect, and interaction.
