The Bray’s fellowship program was started in 1999 by a generous donation made by Robert and Suzanne Taunt. Robert Taunt’s idea was to “provide much-needed financial support to an individual of exceptional talent and potential, it also would encourage the spirit of fellowship in its most generous sense among the resident community.”

The Bray has had the honor and privilege to award the following fellowships—Taunt, Myhre, Lincoln, Lilian, Matsutani, MJD, Speyer, Windgate, Lillstreet Art Center, Anonymous fellowships—made possible by Robert and Suzanne Taunt, Eric Myhre, Joan and David Lincoln, Osamu and Grace Matsutani, Mary Jane Davidson, Tim Speyer, the Windgate Charitable Foundation, Lillstreet Art Center and anonymous donors.

The Archie Bray Foundation was the first artist residency program in the United States devoted solely to ceramics. For over sixty years the Bray has brought together artists with diverse backgrounds and approaches to the medium, creating an environment conducive to artistic exchange and individual expression.

Each fellowship awards $5,000 and a one-year residency at the Foundation to artists of exceptional accomplishment and promise. Beneficiaries are expected to embrace the Bray experience of community and exchange, and have the opportunity to focus their attention towards producing and exhibiting a significant body of work.
