Announcing a new fellowship supporting women artists of color

Ongoing Opportunity

Gallery Aferro is very pleased to announce the John and Lynn Kearney Fellowship for Equity in support of gender-based, racial and economic justice. The new fellowship, open to women artists of color of any age, will cover all workspace studio costs of six months for two artists annually, along with a restriction-free stipend and bespoke solo programming opportunities within the vibrant context of Gallery Aferro and Newark, NJ. Artist Bisa Washington will be the inaugural resident for 2019, with an open call for successive residents during 2019 and beyond to be announced later this spring.

If you’re an artist, this fellowship- space, time, and money- could be yours.

If you know someone who could benefit from these fellowships, please tell them about us, and us about them.

If you want to discuss creating the next fellowship advancing equity at Gallery Aferro, let’s talk. We can work together to model the world as we wish it to be. Email Emma Wilcox at ewilcox@aferro.org or 973 353 9533 to learn more about this amazing and surprisingly accessible possibility for you or your group.

The intentional physicality of my paintings is as much a result of my dialogue throughout the process as it is the means with which I invite viewers to experience the work viscerally. Iconography may be the entry point for viewers, but the essence of the elements and ambiguity demand individual interaction with each painting. Layering is both revealing and concealing, creating a balanced tension and suspension which is really what painting is for me. I use the elements to speak for me and I wish to open doors to new dialogue within and between viewers.

Chris Cox, a Philadelphia-area abstract artist, creates oil on canvas abstract landscape, seascapes and atmospheric paintings that are inspired and informed by what she has seen and experienced throughout the world. She builds upon layers of paint until each painting develops a rich history and texture. Her moody paintings are peaceful and meditative with a sense of mystery.

Demetra Tassiou's work is inspired by the Greek culture and Art history and minimalistic and acute techniques used in Japanese art. Her artwork are  imaginative reconnections with nature, sea, and the colorful environments that I have yearned for after moving to large urban American cities from the Mediterranean landscapes.
