About the Exhibition
PAAM welcomes the 2015-16 Visual Arts Fellows in residence at Provincetown’s Fine Arts Work Center (FAWC) for an exhibition of their current or in-progress work. The opening for this exhibition is a potluck: guests are asked to bring a dish large enough to share with six people or a $7 donation.
The Fine Arts Work Center offers a unique residency for writers and visual artists in the crucial early stages of their careers by providing seven-month Fellowships to twenty Fellows each year in the form of living/work space and a modest monthly stipend. Residencies run from October 1 through April 30. Fellows have the opportunity to pursue their work independently in a diverse and supportive community of peers.
Fellows are expected to live and work in Provincetown during the fellowship year. Optional group activities provide Fellows with the opportunity to meet program committee members as well as visiting artists and writers. Visiting artists and writers engage in dialogue with the Fellows throughout the year. The Fine Arts Work Center also seeks to identify local and national venues for Fellows and former Fellows to share their work.
The 2015-16 Visual Arts Fellows are: Marisa Manso, Aaron Richmond, Amy Ritter, Sara Aubry, Erin Diebboll, Isaac McCaslin Michael Menchaca, Heidi Hahn, Jennifer Packer, and Dave Walsh.
