The annual Wynn Newhouse Awards exhibition runs April 22 through June 6 at the Palitz Gallery, located in Syracuse University’s Lubin House at 11 East 61st St., New York City. The exhibition was created to draw attention to the achievements of artists of excellence who have disabilities.
The 2018 grant winners, comprised of six female artists, include Rachel Fein-Smolinski, Emilie Gossiaux, Kazumi Kamae, Alma Leiva, jes sachse, and Sandie Yi. The work of these artists encompasses drawings, paintings, ceramics, video, and site-specific installations. Each of the award winners receives a portion of a $60,000 per year allotment from the Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation.
Nominees and winners of the Wynn Newhouse Awards are chosen by a committee, composed of persons respected in the arts and disabilities communities, who review all submissions, as well as decide how the grant money will be dispersed among the artists. The selection committee for this year’s awards was comprised of: Sara Felice, Point of Contact Gallery; Carrie Moyer, artist and faculty Hunter College; Jane Kaplowicz Rosenblum, artist; and Alice Sheppard, artist and 2015 awardee.
