Since 2015, the Windgate Charitable Foundation has funded sixteen month-long residency fellowships to exceptional visual artists working in traditional craft media. Over the past few years, we have been delighted to welcome these artists into our community and watch their work develop.
For our 2/15/19 Fellowship Deadline, we'll be offering four (4) new Windgate Fellowship awards to support visual artists working in clay, fiber, glass, metal, wood. To help offset the cost of attending a residency, each Windgate Fellowship includes a generous stipend of $1,050. For application details and eligibility requirements, visit www.vermontstudiocenter.org/fellowships.
The deadline to submit an application is Friday, February 15th, 2019 at 11:59pm, Eastern.
Without this contrast of singular studio working and communal enrichment, I feel my time would not have been as fruitful. The funding of the Windgate Fellowship made all of this possible. I appreciate greatly having the opportunity to come to Johnson, VT to work, and I am returning to New York as a revived individual and artist.

This entire experience - and especially getting the Windgate Fellowship - felt like the validation of everything I have been working so incredibly hard to get for so so many years...Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to experience a moment like that and a place like this.
