The MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire has announced the Fellows for fall-early winter 2018 residencies. They have awarded 87 artists from 19 states and six countries. The recipients work in seven disciplines and 67 members of the incoming cohort are first-time fellows. These fellowships, each with an average value of $10,000, were selected from a pool of 642 applicants. MacDowell Fellows are selected by the admissions panels, which are comprised of a revolving group of distinguished professionals in each artistic discipline who serve anonymously for three years.
“These artists bring their diverse voices and visions, share those gifts in residence with artists of different disciplines, and no doubt their work will resonate with audiences around the world,” says Executive Director Cheryl A. Young.
The most recent group of Fellows includes composers Bryon Asher, Armando Bayolo, Frank Carlberg, Arthur Gottschalk, Ofir Klemperer, Victor Marquez-Barrios, Kurt Rohde, and Anthony Wilson.
The MacDowell Colony awards more than 300 fellowships each year. The next application deadline is Sept. 15, 2018 for the winter-spring 2019 residency period.
