Brandeis professors Tory Fair and Susan Lichtman have each been named recipients of Mass Cultural Council 2018 Artist Fellowships.

The annual fellowships are awarded by anonymous judges in six categories: choreography, fiction/creative nonfiction, painting, drawing and printmaking, poetry and traditional arts.

Fair, associate professor of sculpture, was awarded a fellowship in the drawing and printmaking category. Lichtman, Charles Bloom Chair in the Arts of Design, was awarded a fellowship in the painting category.

Winners were selected based on the creative ability and artistic quality of the submitted work. Applications were open to all eligible Massachusetts artists. In all, 19 artists received fellowships and 17 were named finalists out of a pool of over 900 applicants. Fellowship winners were awarded $12,000 each, and finalists were awarded $1,000. Along with Fair and Lichtman, Sarah Lubin, who received a post-baccalaureate certificate in studio art in 2008, was named a finalist in the painting category.

The Mass Cultural Council website features an online showcase of winners and finalists, including works from Fair and Lichtman.
