Fogelberg Studio Fellowship ProgramThe Fogelberg Studio Fellowship Program is designed to provide emerging ceramic artists an opportunity to be in residence for one year at the Northern Clay Center, where they can develop their own work, as well as exchange ideas and knowledge with other ceramic artists.
Two studio fellowships will be awarded in 2013, valued at $3,000 each. Fellowship recipients will share a large, private, fully furnished studio space (measuring 16’ x 11’) from September 1, 2013 through August 31, 2014. In addition to the work space, each fellowship includes a modest materials and a firing stipend, as well as participation (at no charge for most) in NCC workshops and lectures. Recipients’ work will also be included in a group exhibition featuring several artists, which will take place in January of 2015. Artists are required to create 100 to 150 vessels for Soup It Up, an annual fundraiser that supports a variety of educational and youth programs throughout the Twin Cities, including this particular program.
NEW TO 2013: recipients will also receive professional development in the form of teacher training; the awardees will end their fellowship year by co-teaching a school residency.
- Eligibility is restricted to clay artists who have completed all formal academic training by the start of the grant period (September 1, 2013), who are not currently enrolled full or part-time in a degree-granting institution (including BA, MFA, or a teaching certification program), and who are not employed full-time as a ceramics teacher at the college level.
