Thrilled to be awarded an Individual Artists Fellowship (Works on Paper) from the Arkansas Arts Council! I plan to spend the money on ink for my printer and framing work for upcoming shows at the Butler Center (January-March 2019) and Batesville Area Arts Council Gallery (March-April 2019).
LITTLE ROCK, AR – Nine Arkansas artists will be recognized for their achievements during an awards ceremony 5:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, at the Historic Arkansas Museum at 200 E. Third St. in Little Rock.
The Arkansas Arts Council, a division of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, will award its Individual Artist Fellowship awards.
“The Individual Artist Fellowships encourage Arkansas artists of all disciplines and give them the resources to grow their careers and talents. This, in turn, contributes to our successful creative economy,” said Stacy Hurst, director of the Department of Arkansas Heritage.
The fellowships recognize individual artistic ability and creative excellence in literary, performing and visual arts. These $4,000 fellowships are awarded annually and enable artists to set aside time for creating their art and improving their skills. Three artistic disciplines are selected each year as categories for the awards.
