Membership

Without this opportunity, it is questionable whether I would have created the body of work that I did. Being awarded the Nick Novak Fellowship enabled me to explore ideas, experiment with different techniques and create an exciting new body of work.

Member Fellowships

Each year Open Studio awards two fellowships to artist members of merit.

Nick Novak Fellowship

Each year since 1981, Open Studio has awarded a fellowship to practicing artists currently involved with the Studio as Artist Members. The Nick Novak Fellowship is offered in memory of one of Open Studio’s most influential master printmakers.

Hexagon Special Projects Fellowship

Through the generous support of an anonymous donor, Open Studio is pleased to offer the Hexagon Special Projects Fellowship, an initiative that provides a fellowship to one Open Studio Artist Member annually. This fellowship fosters and promotes the study of print practices, and creates professional development opportunities to support a mid-career or established Artist Member and their career through the provision of six consecutive months of studio time to create and complete a specific project.
