Link to Info:

Founded in 1972, A.I.R. Gallery is the first artist-run, not-for-profit contemporary art gallery for women artists in the country. As an early alternative space, A.I.R. served as a catalyst for the women's art movement and a model for other artists and arts organizations. Building on A.I.R. 's historical influence on contemporary art, the Fellowship Program, a FREE 12-month intensive program, provides visible gallery space and an opportunity to establish relationships with experienced artists, art professionals and collectors. A panel of outside reviewers will select participants. Fellowship recipients will be assigned New York member liaisons and panelists are encouraged to visit the individual Fellow's studios in preparation for their solo shows. In addition, recipients will plan and implement a community project with the gallery during their tenure.

The 2016-2017 Fellowship Panelists are:
Natalie Bell: Assistant Curator, New Museum
Monika Bravo: Artist
Austin Thomas: Artist, Curator, Community Builder

Selected Artists will be notified by APRIL 2016.
Please do not contact the gallery to inquire about your application.

Fellowship Program is open to artists working in ALL media and seeks to work with those that could benefit from the opportunities that the program offers. Six artists will be awarded a Fellowship.
