Ellis-Beauregard Foundation and CMCA Announce New Award for a Maine Artist
- October 11, 2017
The Ellis-Beauregard Foundation, located in Rockland, Maine, announces a $25,000 fellowship award for a Maine artist working in the visual arts.
The Ellis-Beauregard Foundation through the generosity of its founders, artists John David Ellis and Joan Beauregard, has created a foundation to support the work of individual artists. The foundation began its operations by initiating four six-month studio residencies in varied genres at the Lincoln Street School in Rockland, accompanied by a stipend.
The newly initiated Ellis-Beauregard Fellowship Award will begin accepting applications online via Submittable.com after October 14, 2017, with the intention of delivering the award by the end of the year. The Ellis-Beauregard Foundation Fellowship award will be accompanied by a solo exhibition in the following year at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockland, a wonderful community partnership made possible through the vision of its Director, Suzette McAvoy.
The applications will be juried by a panel of experts in the field from outside the State of Maine to be announced at a later date. Please visit ellis-beauregardfoundation.org or call Donna McNeil, Executive Director, Ellis-Beauregard Foundation at 207-594-5825 for further information.
