Fine Arts Work Center Visual Arts Fellows


PAAM and the Fine Arts Work Center (FAWC) share a long history of collaboration and creative connection.

This year we are pleased to welcome the Fine Arts Work Center’s 2022 Visual Fellows. This exhibition will include sculpture, installation, paintings, drawings, textiles and mixed media. Featuring a stylistic mix of figurative, abstract and conceptual works of art, the artists explore a number of topics including the limits between body and architecture, anxiety and intimacy; issues of place and representation, more specifically how the two inform one another; as well as the complex layers of extraction, violence, and expression within the American landscape.

PAAM is grateful to Sharon Polli, Executive Director and MiYoung Sohn, Visual Arts Fellowship Coordinator for their assistance with this exhibition and ensuring the ongoing partnership between PAAM and FAWC.

Participating artists include: Ellen Akimoto, Austin Ballard, Kevin Brisco Jr., Emsaki S., Nick Fagan, Elizabeth Flood, Lavaughan Jenkins, Tom Pappas and Georden West.

The FAWC Visual Arts residency is a unique opportunity for artists in the crucial early stages of their careers. The Work Center provides 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.
