Employer Profile: Hamiltonian Artists Fellowship

www.hamiltonianartists.org

Hamiltonian Artists is a 501c (3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing professional development opportunities for creative artists in their early careers. We offer a competitive two-year fellowship program for new innovative visual artists in all media, which are awarded through an annual competition.

The So Hamiltonian Fellows Program will function as a creative incubator for artists who have finished their academic training and may still be exploring their artistic directions in alternative art spaces, but have not yet transitioned into a career path as an exhibiting artist. It is our hope that artists represented by the gallery will learn some of the basic entrepreneurial skills necessary to achieve success as an exhibiting artist while they continue to grow artistically. At the same time, they will also gain valuable experience in the administration of both a non-profit art space and a commercial gallery.

We allot four to five slots per year, which is renewable once for one year (two years total) to emerging artists to be a Hamiltonian Fellow.  Fellows are required to participate in approximately 5 exhibitions in two years, one critique per month, one opening per month, one artist talk per month, one Professional Development Lecture per month, plus various other Fellowship activities, such as museum tours, art fairs and curator visits.  Artists are required to relocate to the greater Baltimore/Washington Metropolitan Area to benefit fully from the program.
