Foreland Fellowship

The Foreland Fellowship provides a free 1,000 square foot studio at Foreland to an exceptional Hudson Valley-based artist who identifies as Black, Indigenous, Latinx, AAPI or as a person of color. Foreland acknowledges that structural barriers exist to make participation in the art world more difficult for artists of color. We are striving to develop a community that looks like the world we want to live in: strongly diverse, mutually supportive and culturally significant. The Fellowship studio is located within our campus comprised of 31 artist studios, exhibition spaces, event spaces and a café. In addition to the studio, this fellowship includes professional development opportunities such as studio visits with curators and/or galleries; exposure to the network of prestigious artists who base their studio practice at Foreland; and access to Foreland’s ancillary initiatives including events, programs, fairs, and exhibitions. Please note that this opportunity does not include housing or supplemental funding.

The Fellowship runs from June 1 to November 30, 2022.
