The A.I.R. Gallery Fellowship Program, in place since 1993, provides under-represented and emerging artists with a visible gallery space while focusing on building relationships with other more experienced artists and art professionals. By removing the financial responsibilities of membership, the Fellowship Program includes a younger and more diverse group of women artists in the artist-run nature of the gallery. A panel of outside curators, critics and established artists selects participating artists annually. Panelists visit the individual artists’ studios in preparation for their solo shows.
The 2013-2014 Fellowship Panelists are: Katherine Chan, Director, David Nolan Gallery; Nancy Princenthal, Contributing Editor, Art in America; Instructor, Writing and Criticism MFA program, School of Visual Arts; Judith Rodenbeck, Professor of Modern & Contemporary Art, Sarah Lawrence College. .
Each participating artist has the opportunity to work with the gallery artists to staff gallery programs and activities, and plans and implements a special community project for the gallery during their tenure. The program is structured to give the involved artists the opportunity to develop their work in preparation for a solo show, to build relationships with other artists and arts professionals, and to learn about not-for-profit gallery operations. They leave the program with a series of naturally forged relationships, experiences and skill sets useful in continuing their careers as visual artists.
