UK Art Studio Senior Named Windgate Fellow

Published: May 7, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 7, 2013) — Graduating University of Kentucky art studio senior Andrea Clark, of Bowling Green, Ky., has been awarded a Windgate Fellowship by University of North Carolina at  Asheville's Center for Craft, Creativity & Design. The fellowship is awarded to 10 graduating college seniors who have demonstrated exemplary skill in craft. Each Windgate Fellow receives $15,000 — one of the largest awards offered nationally to art students. The selection process presents a rare opportunity to survey the best and brightest emerging makers in the field of craft.

 

"The Windgate Fellowship program gives us a glimpse of the best emerging talent in the field of craft," said Stephanie Moore, executive director of the Center for Craft, Creativity & Design. "The funds generously provided by the Windgate Charitable Foundation are critical and impact these artists in profound ways."

 

Four judges reviewed a national pool of 115 applicants from 68 universities on the basis of artistic merit and the potential of each applicant to make significant contributions to the field of craft. The selection panel advanced 25 candidates to the final round for further consideration. During the in-person meeting on April 4, the panel reviewed each proposal by these 25 candidates, deliberated the online score results, and selected this year's 10 Windgate Fellows.

 

The 2013 panel included: Dustin Farnsworth, 2010 Windgate Fellow and Penland resident artist; Jayson Lawfer, creator and director of The Nevica Project; Julie Muñiz, associate curator of design and decorative arts at the Oakland Museum of California in Oakland, Calif.; and Mark Leach, executive director of the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem, N.C.

 

As an artist, Clark has been experimenting with various materials and processes from a young age. A recipient of two Research and Creativity Grants through UK, she expanded her creative process through workshops at the Penland School of Crafts, the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and Shanghai University. Clark said she is thrilled to be recognized for her work in ceramics and will be able to further her research with the funding. The Windgate Fellow also has a minor in art history. 

 

"The fellowship will fund my continued research on the vast capabilities of the ceramic material by sourcing equipment and providing for visits to both the European Ceramic Workcentre (the Netherlands) and the International Ceramic Design Symposium (Budapest) to contextualize my work within the field of contemporary ceramics,” Clark said.

 

Since 2006, the Center for Craft, Creativity & Design has awarded the Windgate Fellowships to 80 graduating seniors working in craft representing more than 68 colleges and universities. The center's mission is to advance the understanding of craft by encouraging and supporting research, scholarship and professional development.

 

The UK School of Art and Visual Studies at the UK College of Fine Arts is an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design and offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in the fields of art studio, art history and visual studies and art education.
