The Ellis-Beauregard Foundation, through the generosity of its founders, artists John David Ellis and Joan Beauregard, is offering a newly created $25,000 unrestricted fellowship to a Maine visual artist. The award will be made in recognition of exceptional original work which adds to Maine’s renowned cultural lexicon. In addition the awardee will be granted a solo exhibition at CMCA, the Center for Maine Contemporary Art. The award is the first fellowship offered from the newly created family foundation and is an exciting addition to other opportunities in Maine which substantially support artists directly.
CMCA director Suzette McAvoy and Ellis-Beauregard Foundation director Donna McNeil announced the partnership at the Foundation’s inaugural reception in Rockland on September 27, 2017.
