The Lighthouse Works’ primary purpose is to provide artists with the space and time, free from material concerns, to do their best creative work. We bring artists on fellowship to beautiful Fishers Island, where they are provided with room, board and studio space, giving them ample opportunity for quiet productivity in a serene, supportive environment.

The Lighthouse Works accepts artists working in a wide range of media: fiction writers, poets, and writers of creative nonfiction; painters, sculptors, those working in video and installation, and other visual artists; musicians and composers. Artistic excellence is the primary criterion for acceptance as a Lighthouse Works fellow.

Our organization’s efforts also support and enrich the Fishers Island community through a letterpress print shop, open studios, readings, concerts, and workshops for students and adults. By assisting artists at critical junctures in their careers, we aim to be a significant force in preserving and promoting the central role of the arts in our culture. We hope our work will also inspire the creation of other small businesses and organizations in our community, making Fishers Island an enclave of creativity and a cultural destination.

Any serious artist at any stage of his or her career is welcome to apply through our online application system. Applicants are required to fill out an application form and to submit work samples and a statement of intent. While our staff reviews applications for completeness, a panel of professionals in the applicant’s artistic field evaluates each portfolio. Because the fellowship program accepts only 20 artists a year, our process is necessarily quite selective.

Fellowships are six weeks in length and occur year-round. The Lighthouse Works provides fellows with housing, food, studio space, a $250 travel allowance and a stipend of $1,500 to defray the costs of shipping materials, the purchase of art supplies, and other expenses incurred in making artwork in a remote location; our belief is that no artist should have to spend money to accept the opportunity of a fellowship.

Escape to Create is a nationally recognized multidisciplinary artist residency hosted since 1993 by the Seaside community. E2C is a volunteer non-profit organization that represents the unique character of a community deeply invested in the arts. Residencies are made possible through the generosity of Seaside homeowners, merchants, and donors.

As they embark on their third decade, Escape to Create offers the portrait of a town that extends a rare hospitality in welcoming artists as guests of the community. The residency itself is made possible by the extraordinary generosity of homeowners who donate their resort homes for artist housing during January and February. Their local arts organizations, galleries and restaurants provide intimate venues that facilitate powerful connection and exchange during artist presentations. E2C’s “bottomless pot of soup,” contributed by awarded restaurants, are served at weekly roundtable dinners where inspiration, collaboration, and often, enduring friendships are first savored.  These contributions and many others reflect the philanthropic character of the Seaside community that makes this unique creative retreat possible.

Since their first artists-in-residence arrived over 25 years ago, Escape to Create has gained national recognition for its impact in the region and in the creative lives of our alums. Over 150 writers, musicians, visual artists, and scholars have been awarded a month-long retreat as emerging and mid-career artists. E2C Alumni include nominees and recipients of our nation’s highest awards including Pulitzer and Pushcart Prizes; National Book Award; American Academy of Arts & Letters; The American Academy in Rome; ASCAP Awards; Aaron Copeland Award; Guggenheim Foundation; James Beard Award, Grammy Award and many more. E2C is honored to have furthered their creative work and celebrate their ongoing contributions to the arts.

grant_4The Pollock-Krasner Foundation’s dual criteria for grants are recognizable artistic merit and demonstrable financial need, whether professional, personal or both. The Foundation’s mission is to aid, internationally, those individuals who have worked as professional artists over a significant period of time.

Application Guidelines
The Foundation welcomes, throughout the year, applications from visual artists who are painters, sculptors and artists who work on paper, including printmakers. There are no deadlines. The Foundation encourages applications from artists who have genuine financial needs that are not necessarily catastrophic. Grants are intended for a one-year period of time. The Foundation will consider need on the part of an applicant for all legitimate expenditures relating to his or her professional work and personal living, including medical expenses. The size of the grant is determined by the individual circumstances of the artist. Professional exhibition history will be taken into consideration. Artists must be actively exhibiting their current work in professional artistic venues, such as gallery and museum spaces.

Artists can apply to The Pollock-Krasner Foundation by submitting an online application. Requirements for consideration are the application form, a cover letter, a current resume including an exhibition record, and ten digital images of current work with a corresponding identification list. All applications will be promptly acknowledged and considered.

Artists interested in applying to the Foundation should:

  1. Review the grant guidelines to ensure eligibility before you begin the application. If you have additional questions regarding eligibility that are not answered on these pages, please contact us.
  2. Read the FAQs.
  3. Begin an online application by following this link.

A crucial part of the application process is based on the Committee of Selection’s review of each artist’s images. The Foundation will only accept images completed within the past ten years. The Foundation urges artists to send the highest quality images of their work.
