Each year, OVAC offers the Visual Arts Fellowships - two awards of $5,000 each for Oklahoma artists. The call for entries for the 2009 Fellowship is out now! New this year, we're also offering two Student Awards of Excellence at $500 each.
These awards are based on past achievement and future promise and the money can be used as the artist needs.

Besides getting a chance at a significant award, it also serves as your annual reminder to update your resume, revisit your artist statement and freshen up your art images. And, if you're an OVAC member, it's free to apply. The deadline is May 1.
Here's what you need:
