Center for Craft Artist Fellowship

Center for Craft Artist Fellowship

This Deadline Expired: Thursday, October 1, 2020

The Artist Fellowship program at the Center for Craft in Asheville, North Carolina, is one of four comprising the Craft Research Fund, which was created to encourage, expand, and support scholarly craft research in the United States

To help advance this mission, the center welcomes applications for its Artist Fellows program. Through the program, two grants of up to $20,000 will be awarded to advance, expand, and support the creation of new research and knowledge through craft practice. Proposals are welcome from mid-career artists, artisans, designers, makers, sculptors, and others who identify their practice within the field of craft. The center, and by extension the grant, recognizes craft to be a particular approach to making with a strong connection to materials, skill, and process.

Examples of craft research identified by the center include but are not limited to archive and museum-based research; material innovations and experimentation; process-oriented research/innovation; historical research; collaborations among artists and/or with other disciplines and/or institutions; and other projects that have the potential to transform questions that are being asked in an academic context.

To be eligible, applicants must be 21 or older, eligible to receive taxable income in the United States, and have been living and working in the U.S. for the last two years and for the duration of the fellowship period.

See the Center for Craft for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

My art is a psychological diary of my personal translation of the individual’s journey through life. It is a kind of fairytale; a story that teaches, both symbolic and narrative.
