Ragdale Artist Fellowships

Ragdale Artist Fellowships

This Deadline Expired: Friday, May 15, 2020

Located in the former country estate of architect Howard Van Doren Shaw, Ragdale is a nonprofit artists community. Nearly two hundred residencies and fellowships are offered annually to creative professionals of all types, making Ragdale one of the largest interdisicplinary communities in the country. During each residency session, thirteen artists-in-residence enjoy uninterrupted time for work, a supportive environment, dynamic arts exchanges, fifty acres of idyllic prairie, and a family-style dinner each evening.

Ragdale has posted numerous upcoming fellowship opportunities:

Wendy is a Self-taught Collage Artist. The main focus of her Mixed Media Collage Work is to intermingle the old with the new. I push boundaries to create & discover different processes in which to incorporate images of older, more worn items with newer ones into my work, all for the purpose of creating one fluid, mystical image of beauty.

Composing in series, and often series within series, all of my projects from the past couple of decades have dealt with social issues, and more recently have embraced text as both content and image:

*  states of mind as one-word declarations (SO I WAS, LIKE....)

* the interior lives of artists (DESIDERATUM)

* odd courting and mating habits in the animal kingdom that sometimes echo our own (RE:PRODUCTION – Portraits)
* the dysfunction of todays politics seen through an historical perspective (WHEEL, DEAL, STEAL, THEN SPIN)

* death – it’s customs, euphemisms, architecture (THE FINAL FRONTIER)

* profiling and identity (The MARK Portraits)

* violence in America (TOKENS, PRECIS, HARBINGERS AND HERALDS, AMERICAN PIE, EIKONS)
