Each fellowship awards $5,000 for one year to support a long-term resident artist who demonstrates exceptional
merit and promise. The Fellows are expected to embrace the
Bray experience of community and creative exchange and have the opportunity to focus their attention to produce
and exhibit a significant body of work during their residency.
Fellowships are non-renewable.
