2020 LeRoy Neiman Foundation Fellowship at Ox-Bow School of Art and Artists’ Residency

Call for Student Artists: Ox-Bow’s Summer Fellowship is a fully funded opportunity for student artists to focus on their work, meet with renowned artists, and grow as members of this unique community. These students live on our campus for 13 weeks where they participate in campus life as both staff members and artists. By working closely with the staff, fellows develop relationships with others who have also made artmaking their lives. Fellowship students are either selected by Ox-Bow’s jury or the departments at one of eight partnering schools based on the merit of their work and on their commitment to making inspired and innovative art. During their stay at Ox-Bow, fellowship students are able to reinforce their commitments to artmaking, benefit from intense focus and access to professional artists. The fellowship program is a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate within an engaging artist-run community.

Fellowship recipients receive:

A studio space with 24 hour access
Weekly stipend for working 20 hours on campus in housekeeping, the kitchen, grounds and maintenance or the office
Free housing and meals
Weekly studio visits with visiting artists
Opportunity to exhibit their work
Opportunity to audit a two week course of their choosing

Ox-Bow offers 3 fellowships to undergraduate and graduate students from any degree-seeking institution

Applicants must:
Be undergraduate students in the junior/senior year or MFA students
Have graduated December 2019 or later
Be at least 21 years old at the start of the fellowship
Have the ability to work in the United State or have a work visa

Through abstract geometric paintings, Philadelphia artist Melinda Steffy translates music into color patterns, exploring ideas of translation, information and data, and how music weaves throughout human experience. Melinda Steffy’s RUINATION DAY series (acrylic on wood panel) deconstructs folk and blues songs that reference the date April 14, which is when Lincoln was shot, the Titanic hit the iceberg, and the Black Sunday dust storm devastated the Midwest. Melinda Steffy’s BACH PROJECT series (watercolor on paper) converts classical music by J.S. Bach and Bela Bartok into grids and pie charts. Rather than hear one note after the other through time, the paintings show all of the notes and rhythms simultaneously on one visual plane.

Phyllis Anderson has been painting for nearly three decades, exploring process and outcome, meaning and metaphor.  She approaches her work like a lab experiment, a set of steps to see what will happen. Her painting process usually begins with a thick underpainting using a carefully chosen color (a color of influence!) which is left intentionally visible at the edges.

I enjoy the manipulation of materials and how process itself contributes to the life and form of the image. Dramatic, gestural lines describe the play of light and wind across the water, while softer marks add life to the slow movement of rain laden clouds. Areas of sky, water, and land are knit together with brushstrokes to represent their seamless interaction under the common conditions of weather and time. In my acid etched tin pieces, areas of watery marks are left visible to suggest the underlying layers of the landscape. I  do not strive to recreate the particulars of  places that inspire me, but rather the timelessness of the elements of light, weather, and geometries that inform them. My work is not about how the landscape looks as much as about how the landscape makes me feel. I try to create an image that allows the viewer to engage with it in such a way as to invite similar introspection.
