Kala Art Institute is pleased to announce the thirtieth year of the Fellowship Program. The Kala Fellowship award is an international competition open to artists from the U.S. and around the world. Artists producing innovative work in all mediums including printmaking, digital media, installation art, social practice, photography, and book arts are encouraged to apply. Fellowship Awards are given based on conceptual creativity, originality, and artistic excellence as well as technical knowledge.
In 2016, Kala will award eight artists a $3,000 stipend, unlimited access to Kala’s facilities for up to six months, one Kala class, and a culminating show in the Kala Gallery. The award is geared towards supporting artists in completing specific projects or bodies of work that would benefit from Kala’s specialized equipment in printmaking and digital media. This is a studio residency only; housing is not included.
The 2016 – 2017 Fellowship residency period is October 1st, 2016 through July 31st, 2017. Artists must be able to schedule a 1 to 6 month residency during that time. The group exhibition is currently scheduled for July through September 2017.
