Artist Fellowships

Supporting Individual Artists

The Tamarack Foundation for the Arts fosters in depth relationships with creatives across generations. Our Creative Entrepreneur Fellowship allows us to provide artists with intensive support as they develop their entrepreneurial skills and establish small businesses. We celebrate the work of WV treasures with the Master Artist Fellowship and look to them as examples of what’s possible with a creative career based in the Mountain State.

Creative Entrepreneur Fellowship

The Tamarack Foundation for the Arts’ (TFA) Creative Entrepreneur Fellows are artists who demonstrate not only a superior level of mastery in their craft, but also the aptitude to become successful professionals capable of leading well-managed creative enterprises. Fellows represent the potential for outcomes beyond the scope of their individual bodies of work and are viewed as future contributors to growing local economies and businesses that make communities more desirable places for all.
