The fellowships provide up to £11 000 towards developing an exhibition project that will form a core part of future programming at the Stanley Picker Gallery.
Founded in 1987, the scheme now provides for two high-profile practitioners in the fields of art and design to develop a body of work within the faculty.
Current Stanley Picker design fellow Julia Lohmann has investigated kelp as a natural alternative to wood and plastics, which has culminated in the exhibition Laminarium, which is showing at the Stanley Picker Gallery until 19 June.
Previous fellows include illustrator Sara Fanelli, El Ultimo Grito, and Shelley Fox.
The 2010 fellowships are open for applications until 11 June. For more information visit www.stanleypickergallery.org.
