The A.I.R. Fellowship Program

Each year, the A.I.R. Fellowship Program provides six emerging or underrepresented women-identified artists with their first solo exhibition in NYC. During a 12-month period, participants attend monthly professional development workshops, receive studio visits by art professionals, mentoring by an A.I.R. Gallery artist, and curatorial support from A.I.R. Staff. This curated program is designed to encourage new artistic practices and to increase dialogue within A.I.R. Gallery and the greater art community. Find out more about the Fellowship Program here.

A.I.R. Gallery’s 2019 Benefit honors Stephanie Bernheim.

In 1993, Stephanie Bernheim established the A.I.R. Fellowship Program to support underrepresented and emerging self-identified women artists in the New York City region. Over the past twenty-five years, the Fellowship program has helped over 92 artists have their first solo exhibition in New York City. The program encourages artistic experimentation and rigor by providing a space where feminist historical precedence and intergenerational dialogue are at the forefront.
