Each year, St. Michael’s Printshop invites applications from emerging artists who wish to come to work at St. Michael’s Printshop for one year under the Don Wright Printmaking Scholarship.
First awarded in 1991, the Don Wright Scholarship was established in recognition of visual artist Don Wright for the valuable contribution he made to the development of St. Michael’s Printshop and the visual arts in Newfoundland and Labrador.
This program offers an emerging artist the opportunity to develop his/her ideas and technical skills in a professional printmaking facility. One scholarship residency is offered each year. In order to qualify, applicants must meet the following minimum requirements:
- Normally reside in Newfoundland and Labrador (or be willing to relocate in order to commit a reasonable amount of time to the scholarship)
- Be recent graduates of a Fine Arts Program of study.
- Must demonstrate technical competence and innovation in the print medium.
