The submission period for the 2018 Traveling Fellowship has ended and applications are no longer being accepted.  Best of luck to all who submitted their application.  The winner will be notified on February 1, 2018.


"I have always depended on the kindness of strangers."
Blanche Dubois, A Street Car Named Desire

We need your help!

Donald and Kim Jurney have contributed the initial funding for the Fellowship but we need your help to make sure this worthwhile project moves forward.  While knowing that many demands are made on your kindness we ask that you seriously consider helping us to underpin the Fellowship, make sure that this once-in-a-while opportunity continues to be offered to artists far into the future.

Because the Newburyport Art Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, your contribution is tax-deductible, too!  Please do what you can.
Thank you.
