2022 Individual Artist FellowshipsDelaware Division of the Arts

From now until September 5th, works by the Delaware Division of the Arts (DDoA)' Individual Artist Fellowship award winners will be exhibited at CAMP Rehoboth located in Sussex County, Delaware.

Attendees can meet the artists at the winners' reception on Friday, August 5th. There will be socializing in the courtyard, touring the art in the gallery, and performances and readings. The fellowship winners have been recognized for their outstanding quality of work. Visual arts on display include paintings, polymer, photography, charcoal, sculptures, and media arts. Samples of literary winners’ works can be perused in a reading nook, and performance pieces are available for visitors’ listening pleasure.

“Along with health and wellness programs and advocacy for the LGBTQ+ community, part of CAMP Rehoboth's mission is support of the arts. CAMP Rehoboth is honored to partner with Delaware Division of the Arts and the Biggs Museum American Art to bring the talent of Delaware artists to Sussex County.” — Leslie Sinclair, CAMP Rehoboth Arts Director

This year the DDoA received work samples from 132 Delaware artists, of which 25 were awarded fellowships. Selected fellows are based across the state in Georgetown, Lewes, Magnolia, Dover, Smyrna, Middletown, Townsend, Newark, Hockessin, and Wilmington.

Jessica Ball, Director of the DDoA, encourages Delawareans to join in celebrating the artists at CAMP Rehoboth:

Partnerships like this allow the Division to showcase the wide range of talents that exists in our state. These artists will enjoy the appreciation of citizens from up and down Delaware’s landscape.

A future exhibition will be held at Cab Calloway School of the Arts in Wilmington from October 1st to November 1, 2022, with a reception on October 7th.

About the Fellowship

The Division offers fellowships in the artistic disciplines of choreography, folk art, jazz, literature, media arts, music, and visual arts. Artists’ work samples are reviewed by nationally recognized out-of-state arts professionals, considering both demonstrated creativity and skill in the art form.

The awards ($3,000 for Emerging Artists, $6,000 for Established Professionals, and $10,000 for Masters) allow artists to pursue advanced training, purchase equipment and materials, or fulfill other needs that will help advance their careers. The highest honor—the Masters Fellow—is reserved for those who meet rigorous criteria. Only one Masters Fellow can be awarded each year. Disciplines rotate every three years.
