Selection process

Applications will be reviewed by an External Review Panel composed of gallerists, art educators, art collectors, curators, and professional artists. The panelists will be selected for the breadth of their knowledge and expertise and the final roster will also change from year to year. The selection process will be based on the applicant's artistic vision, the quality of his/her artwork, his/her potential to excel within the program, and his/her desire to contribute to the community of artists at Hamiltonian Artists. Selection of the Hamiltonian Fellows will be made in early April, 2012. All applicants will receive a confirmation email after their application has been processed, as well as after the jury makes their selections. Hamiltonian Artists accepts five artists into the fellowship program per year.
