Our Studio Fellowship Program was developed to combine our mission and vision, creating an experience for artists that not only supports their creative process, but also provides them with an opportunity to support our community. Twice a year, artists from the greater Omaha area will be selected through juried process to serve as Fellows. Get to know our 2014 Spring Fellows: Rich Mansfield, Laura Carlson, Amanda DeBoer Bartlett, Monica Ghali and Renee Ledesma...
