The A.I.R. Fellowship Program

Each year, the A.I.R. Fellowship Program provides six emerging or underrepresented women-identified artists with their first solo exhibition in NYC. During a 12-month period, participants attend monthly professional development workshops, receive studio visits by art professionals, mentoring by an A.I.R. Gallery artist, and curatorial support from A.I.R. Staff. This curated program is designed to encourage new artistic practices and to increase dialogue within A.I.R. Gallery and the greater art community.
