Artist Fellowships

Supporting Individual Artists

The Tamarack Foundation for the Arts fosters in depth relationships with creatives across generations. The Emerging Artist Fellowship allows us to provide early career 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.
