Laughlin awarded fellowship by Virginia Center for Creative Arts

Professor of Art Page Laughlin has been awarded a fellowship by the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA).

“Page Laughlin will be among approximately 25 fellows focusing on their own creative projects at this working retreat for visual artists, writers and composers,” according to a VCCA announcement.   “The artists who come to VCCA, whether emerging or established, are selected through competitive peer review on the basis of the important or innovative work they are doing in their respective fields.”

VCCA describes itself as a “unique Virginia-based organization of national stature and international impact.”

It hosts more than 400 artist-fellows annually at its Mt. San Angelo facility in Amherst, Va., and 50 annually in Auvillar, France.

A typical residency ranges from two weeks to two months.
