The Kingston Gallery would like to congratulate Erica Licea-Kane for being awarded a full fellowship in painting by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. There were 578 applicants, with 8 full memberships and 5 finalist awards being selected this year. The panelists for this award were Nicole Duennebier, Roger Hankins, Masako Kamiya, and Dominic Molon.
The artist fellowship program recognizes exceptional work by Massachusetts artists across a range of disciplines. These highly competitive awards provide artists necessary recognition and help advance artistic development for each artist as well as the entire artistic community. The Massachusetts Cultural Council is the largest arts funding organization in the state and Massachusetts is one of the few states that still provide unrestricted grants for artists.
Licea-Kane’s work is currently on exhibit in the project space at the Kingston Gallery, along with work by Ilona Anderson in the main and center galleries.
