Lighthouse Works is seeking applications from artists, choreographers and writers for Session 34 and Session 35 of our Fellowship Program. Fellowships are six-weeks in length and provide room, board, studio space and $1,750 in stipends.
Session 34 - March 12 to April 23, 2019
Session 35 - May 7 to June 18, 2019
While in residence, our fellows’ primary obligation is to the solitary pursuit of their work but we do ask every fellow to participate in an artist talk on the first weekend of the fellowship and to open their studio for an afternoon at the session’s conclusion. Each fellow has a private bedroom and shares bathrooms, the kitchen and living space at our residence. The house is always stocked with food (with dietary needs accommodated), and most nights the directors cook for—and eat dinner with—the fellows.
Our studios are located adjacent to Silver Eel Cove where our ferry arrives and departs the island. The studios are private, flooded with light and face the ocean. Additionally, Lighthouse Works maintains a wood and metal shop, a Paragon kiln, a black and white darkroom and a letterpress print shop. All of which are available to our fellows.
Our program is unique in its size and intimacy; we award fellowships to 25 artists a year. In a program this small, everyone gets to know each other. Thus the fellowship, while allowing ample solitude and plenty of unstructured work time, also allows for conversation, critique, and collaboration.
Artists at any stage of their career are encouraged to apply for a fellowship through our online application system. Applicants are required to fill out an application form, submit work samples and attach a CV and current work statement and are encouraged to visit our website for further information about the application - https://www.thelighthouseworks.com/apply/
While our staff reviews applications for completeness, a jury of experts in each artist’s field evaluates the applications and identifies the finalists. Finalists will be invited for phone interviews, and all applicants will be informed of the committee’s decision by the notification date for the relevant application period. Artistic excellence is the primary criterion for acceptance into the Fellowship Program.
