The NextGen Studio Fellowship provides support for a promising contemporary visual artist who has exhibited in one of the previous NextGen exhibitions. 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 NextGen Studio 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.
We are currently accepting applications for the the Next Generation Studio Fellowship until November 1, 2021.
