2011 Hamiltonian Fellows

As they conclude their third year of outstanding artist-centric programming, Hamiltonian Artists has named five new, distinguished Hamiltonian Fellows for 2011 to join their five existing Fellows. The 2011 Fellows are dominated by a concentration of three MICA MFAs and they are:

· Nora Howell (MFA, Maryland Institute College of Art)
· Sarah Knobel (MFA, University of Cincinatti)
· Matthew Mann (MFA, American University)
· Jenny Mullins (MFA, Maryland Institute College of Art)
· Joshua Wade Smith (MFA, Maryland Institute College of Art, Mt. Royal School of Art)

On Saturday, August 13, 2011, from 7-9pm, Hamiltonian Gallery will open an introductory group exhibition of these five new Fellows. Each artist will be displaying the work with which they were accepted. The exhibition will run from August 13 - September 10, 2011.

The five new 2011 So-Hamiltonian Fellows were selected from a pool of over 150 artists who applied this year. The jurors were:

· Ian MacLean Davis - Visual Artist, Hamiltonian Artists and MICA, Mt. Royal School of Art Alumnus
· Tim Doud - Visual Artist, Co-director of MFA Program, American University
· Beatrice Gralton - Curator, Corcoran Gallery of Art
· Carol Huh - Curator of Contemporary Asian Art, Free Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution
· Fletcher Mackey - Visual Artist, Professor, MICA
· Kate MacDonnell - Photographer
