Introducing the 2010 Hamiltonian Fellows

After another outstanding year of artist-centric programming, Hamiltonian Artists has selected five new, distinguished Hamiltonian Fellows for 2010 to join our five existing Fellows.

·      Selin Balci (MFA Candidate, University of Maryland)
·      Ryan Hoover (MFA, Maryland Institute College of Art, Mount Royal School of Art)
·      Joyce Lee (MFA, Maryland Institute College of Art, Mount Royal School of Art)
·      Jessica Van Brakle (BFA, Corcoran Collge of Art + Design)
·      Elena Volkova (MFA, Maryland Institute College of Art)

On Saturday, July 24, 2010, from 7-9pm, Hamiltonian Gallery opened an introductory group exhibition of these five new Fellows.  Each artist will be displaying the work with which they were accepted. The exhibition runs from July 24 - September 4, 2010. 

The five new 2010 So-Hamiltonian Fellows were selected from a pool of over 130 very promising applicants this year.  Hamiltonian Artists brought together seven incredibly acclaimed art professionals to comprise the External Review Panel. The External Review Panel caucused together, and evaluated every application based on criteria regarding technical merit, originality and relevance to today's art world.  Panelists were also asked to discuss how well they thought the applicant would benefit from the program that Hamiltonian provides.
