Denbo Fellowship Summer 2023

The Denbo Fellowship is designed to offer artists, from a range of artistic disciplines, an environment conducive to individual and collaborative creative practice. This Fellowship will provide a unique opportunity to complete a new body of work at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center.

Two artists will be selected for the Summer fellowship (July-September)

Selected artists will receive:
-Up to one month of access to Pyramid’s printshop, paper studio or bindery
-Key to studios and 24-hour access
-Ten hours of one-on-one technical assistance
-A locker and flat file for tools and materials
-Use of standard shop supplies
-A stipend for travel, materials, housing, etc. ($250 two weeks, $350 three weeks, or $500 one month)

Housing is not provided, although we can make a couple of recommendations for housing that is close to Pyramid.

Eligibility: Each applicant will be judged on the artistic merit of their work, interest and potential in printmaking, paper arts and book arts (or a combination thereof), as well as the quality and clarity of their plan for the residency. Although previous experience in a PAAC discipline may be helpful to a successful applicant, such experience is not necessary or expected. Artists are also expected to give a talk about their work during their residency.

Residency Length: minimum 2 weeks, maximum 1 month and should take place between May 15 and September 1, 2023 (specify dates in the application).

Facilities: Pyramid Atlantic Art Center is the premier printmaking, papermaking and book arts workshop in the region. Please see our website for more information regarding facilities.
