Established in 1971 as an independent nonprofit organization with the mission of serving individual artists in New York State, the New York Foundation for the Arts today works to empower working artists and emerging arts organizations across all disciplines at critical stages in their creative lives or professional/organizational development.
To that end, NYFA is accepting applications for a new program, the Recharge Foundation Fellowship for New Surrealist Art. Funded by the Gu family and administered by NYFA, the program will award a $5,000 grant to a painter living in the United States or a U.S. territory and working in the New Surrealist style. The New Surrealist style is an extension of the Surrealist movement, in which artists combine relatable imagery in uncanny and unexpected situations in their work.
To be eligible, applicants must be a painter at any level of his/her career working in the New Surrealist style and be at least 18 years of age at the time of application. (Young painters in bachelor’s or master’s degree programs are eligible.) Applicants also need to be a resident of the United States.
See the NYFA website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
