2018-19 Kahn Family Fellowship Application Deadline

The Ink Shop Printmaking Center offers an annual Fellowship Grant to a printmaker or book artist. The Fellowship has been funded in part of a generous contribution from the Kahn Family, provides an artist with the time and resources to create a new body of work. The Fellow is given the opportunity to present this work in a gallery show. The Fellowship enables an artist to participate in Ink Shop exhibitions and portfolio exchanges and to partake in all aspects of the Ink Shop’s day-to-day management. The Fellow volunteers to help with shop operations, and with workshop and exhibition programs. As such, the Fellowship is particular attractive to those wishing to learn about running a nonprofit arts organization.

The next Fellowship begins September 14, 2018 and ends June 14, 2019. The Fellow is offered a stipend of $2000 and all the benefits and privileges of a Printmaker Associate. The Fellow may teach workshops and/or edition for other artists (for which one could be paid additionally as an independent contractor). The Ink Shop provides technical advice, guidance, and assistance in production and use of equipment. For the month of June, the Fellow will have a Solo show.

H. Peter Kahn (1921 – 1997) is fondly remembered by generations of Cornell University students and by members of the Ithaca community as a man whose life was dedicated to the arts of fine printing and the handmade book. A prolific typographer, painter, illustrator, and book designer, the German-born artist lived in Ithaca for forty years. Regarding the Kahn Fellowship, his widow, Ruth Stiles Gannett Kahn, says, “It is an affirmation of Peter’s enthusiasm for graphic arts and his own life as a teacher.”

Deadline is August 10, 2018.
Grant recipients are notified by August 17, 2018.
