Fine Arts Work Center Visual Arts Fellowship – deadline 2/1/12

The Fine Arts Work Center offers a unique residency for writers and visual artists in the crucial early stages of their careers. Located in Provincetown, Massachusetts, an area with a long history as an arts colony, the Work Center provides seven-month Fellowships to twenty Fellows each year in the form of living/work space and a modest monthly stipend. Residencies run from October 1 through May 1. Fellows have the opportunity to pursue their work independently in a diverse and supportive community of peers. A historic fishing port, Provincetown is situated at the tip of Cape Cod in an area of spectacular natural beauty, surrounded by miles of dunes and National Seashore beaches.


The Fellowship is open to all emerging visual artists creating two-dimensional, three-dimensional, 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.

Collaborative teams may apply under one application. If selected they will only be awarded one Fellowship. Please note that visual arts Fellows are provided with furnished living accommodations with one full-sized bed.

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.

Fee: The first year fee for visual arts online submission process is $57 payable by credit card. This includes FAWC’s $45 application fee plus SlideRoom’s $12 usage fee. Second year fellows are only required to pay the $12 usage fee, paid directly to FAWC.
