Call for Student Artists: Ox-Bow’s Summer Fellowship is a fully funded opportunity for student artists to focus on their work, meet with renowned artists, and grow as members of this unique community. These students live on our campus for 13 weeks where they participate in campus life as both staff members and artists. By working closely with the staff, fellows develop relationships with others who have also made artmaking their lives. Fellowship students are either selected by Ox-Bow’s jury or the departments at one of eight partnering schools based on the merit of their work and on their commitment to making inspired and innovative art. During their stay at Ox-Bow, fellowship students are able to reinforce their commitments to artmaking, benefit from intense focus and access to professional artists. The fellowship program is a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate within an engaging artist-run community.

Fellowship recipients receive:

-A studio space with 24 hour access
-Weekly stipend for working 20 hours on campus in housekeeping,   the kitchen, grounds and maintenance or the office
-Free housing and meals
-Weekly studio visits with visiting artists
-Opportunity to exhibit their work
-Opportunity to audit a two week course of their choosing
