Lighthouse Works Fellowship for Artists

Lighthouse Works Fellowship for Artists

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, March 15, 2020

The Lighthouse Works’ Fellowship is an artist-in-residence program that strives to support artists and writers working in the vanguard of their creative fields. Artists, writers, and composers are supported with the time and space to focus on their creative work. 

The program accepts artists working in a wide range of disciplines, but we are best able to accommodate visual artists and writers. Fellowships are six weeks in length, occur year round and provide fellows with housing, food, studio space, a $250 travel allowance and a $1,500 stipend. Artistic excellence is the primary criteria for acceptance as a Lighthouse Works fellow.

While in residence, the fellows’ primary obligation is to the solitary pursuit of their work but the Lighthouse Works does ask every fellow to participate in an artist talk on the first weekend of the fellowship and to open their studio for an afternoon at the session’s conclusion.

Each fellow has a private bedroom and shares bathrooms, the kitchen and living space at the residence. The house is always stocked with food (with dietary needs accommodated), and most nights the directors cook for—and eat dinner with—the fellows. Studios are located adjacent to Silver Eel Cove where the ferry arrives and departs the island. The studios are private, flooded with light and face the ocean. Additionally, Lighthouse Works maintains a wood and metal shop, a Paragon kiln, a black and white darkroom and a letterpress print shop.  All of which are available to fellows.

The program is unique in its size and intimacy; they award fellowships to 25 artists a year. In a program this small, everyone gets to know each other. Thus the fellowship, while allowing ample solitude and plenty of unstructured work time, also allows for conversation, critique, and collaboration.

Applications to the program must be made through their online application system during their two open calls.   More information about applying to the Fellowship Program can be found here.

Fishers Island, NY is a small island located in the Long Island Sound just off the coast of Connecticut. It is accessible by ferry from New London, Connecticut, and by private or commuter boat from Noank, Connecticut. The island is isolated, but not remote; New York City and Boston are both within three hours of the island, and public transportation from there to any major east coast city is easily accessible.

Jenn is a painter! Mostly she's an oil painter, though she's been known to use just about any medium available at a given moment.

She Loves to paint. It's pretty much all she wants to do.
Shes Loves to paint the world and the beautiful things in it — 
and she Loves that people really Love her paintings of our beautiful world and the beautiful things in it!

There is nothing really special about Jenn, she's just painter who paints... just about anything, just about all the time. 

P.S. She's a bit of a formalist — her world is made up of line, color, shape, form, structure, composition and plasticity. And, while she paint from observation, the subject of the painting is not her objective. The process of painting is her objective — the process of how to best use the medium, often oil paint, to create and subjugate form on the two dimensional surface of the canvas.
