Deadline nears for WAC visual arts fellowships

Postmark deadline for applications to the Wyoming Arts Council’s 2009 visual arts fellowships is March 6. Printed forms have been mailed to visual artists on the WAC mailing list. Printable applications are available on the WAC web site at or on the WAC blog. You can have a paper application mailed or faxed to you by calling WAC offices in Cheyenne at 307-777-7742.

The competition is open to Wyoming residents only. You must be 18 or older. Full-time students pursuing high school, college or university art-related degrees are ineligible.

Judging the submissions will be Gina Ruggeri, a painter from Brooklyn, N.Y.; Denver’s Lawrence Argent, a sculptor and arts professor at University of Denver; and Greg Esser of Phoenix, an artist, curator and arts advocate.

This year’s judging session will be held in conjunction with “Public Art & Community: Inspiration and Reflection” April 2-4 at the UW Conference Center in Laramie. The fellowship winners will be announced at the symposium, which is co-sponsored by the University of Wyoming Art Museum and the Wyoming Arts Council.
