The Visual Arts Fellowship

Deadline: February 1, 2014 (ONLINE) or (RECEIVE)

The Visual Arts Fellowship
Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown

Provincetown, MA
2014-2015 Season

Fellowship: The Fine Arts Work Center provides seven-month Fellowships to ten emerging artists and ten emerging writers each year from Oct.1 through April 30. Visual Arts Fellows are provided with a private, furnished apartment, a separate work studio of approximately 400 sq ft and a monthly stipend of $750.

Eligibility: The Fellowship is open to all emerging visual artists creating two-dimensional work, three-dimensional work, and time-based media work. Applicants are judged on the quality of their work and not on previous exhibition experience, resumes, recommendations or the like. The jury disqualifies applicants it deems to be already emerged—e.g., those who have had high profile solo exhibitions, or have been in significant group exhibitions such as biennials. Tenure track professors in Fine Arts who are on sabbaticals are considered ineligible.

Collaborative teams may apply under one application and if selected they will only be awarded one Fellowship to share. Applicants who would like to apply as an individual artist as well as part of a collaborative team may do so if these two bodies of work are completely different and distinctive.

Artists must be in residence during their Fellowships. Absences may not exceed more than fourteen consecutive days or total more than thirty days during the seven-month Fellowship. Please consider any personal or professional commitments you have made or anticipate before applying. The Fine Arts Work Center welcomes family members and partners of Fellows during the Fellowship Term. There is one pet-friendly apartment available for a Visual Artist.

International applicants are welcome to apply. The Fine Arts Work Center actively seeks applicants from all backgrounds, and does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation, marital status, ancestry, disability, HIV status or veteran status.

Applications for the 2014-2015 Visual Arts Fellowship must be completed and submitted electronically on or before 11:59 pm February 1, 2014. The application fee is $57. All applications must be submitted online. Our application does not require recommendations or artist statements.
