Emerging Artist Fellowship


Emerging Artist Fellows are thriving early-career artists. They demonstrate not only a superior level of mastery in their craft, but also the aptitude to become successful professionals leading well-managed creative enterprises. Fellows will be selected by an independent committee comprised of master-level artists and arts leaders from across the state of West Virginia.

The Fellowship provides technical training, mentoring, consulting, and branding to assist each fellow with the successful development and launch of their creative business. Through increased visibility, marketing and networking we assist each one to integrate into local and regional markets and access professional development. 

Apply for the 2021 Emerging Artist Fellowship

Applications for 2021 fellowships are now closed. Fellowship applications for 2022 are scheduled to open December 1st 2021.
