Greenville, SC – Greenville Center for Creative Arts (GCCA) will begin accepting applications for its annual emerging young artist program, the Brandon Fellowship, on Friday, June 3, 2022. This 12-month program aims to develop three emerging artists between the ages of 21 to 30 who represent the diversity of the Greenville community. Those selected receive free studio space, a stipend for supplies, a supportive environment, mentorship, and complimentary art education for one full year. Through this unique opportunity for young creative arts professionals, Fellowship alumni have established themselves as full-time working artists, designers, graduate students, artists-in-residence, instructors, published artists, grant recipients, and award winners.
This will be the eighth year for the program, which was created in 2015 when the Art Center was founded. The application will be available until July 3rd on GCCA’s website. In addition, paper copies can be picked up in person at 101 Abney Street Tuesday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., or Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Applicants must be legal citizens of the United States and residents of Greenville County.
