Artist Grant – Mary E. Nyburg Fund for Artist Development – Deadline: January 15

Mary E. Nyburg with students

The Mary E. Nyburg Fund for Artist Development is an endowment fund begun in 2007 by friends and family of Mary Nyburg. Mary was a respected potter nationally, a crafts advocate, a board member of Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and a life-long supporter of Baltimore Clayworks and at one time a Clayworks’ resident artist. Following Mary’s death in April 2006, a fund was created in her honor to award a $1,500 stipend each year to allow a period of devoted study that would deepen an artist’s work in clay and also strengthen the Clayworks community. The stipend, awarded to one Clayworks’ artist annually helps support travel, study and/or working in another community outside of Baltimore. On return the artist is required to make a presentation to the Clayworks’ community about their experience.


APPLICATION DEADLINE: January 15, 2024, 5:00 pm (EST)

ELIGIBILITY: This award is open to any Baltimore Clayworks artist who was not a recipient within the past five years. This includes associate artists (formerly member artists), former and current resident artists, alumni, visiting artists, teaching artists, springboard members, artists that are members or volunteers of Baltimore Clayworks. Priority is given to artists who are currently active in the Baltimore Clayworks community.

DETAILS: The Nyburg Fund Committee, comprised of four-six friends and family of Mary Nyburg, reviews completed applications and selects each year’s recipient. The committee will consider both the strength of the images and the written proposal. The recipient will be required to sign a grant agreement stipulating the terms of the stipend. In the event that funds are awarded and not used, the stipend must be returned to the Mary E. Nyburg Fund for Artist Development.
