ROCKLAND — The Ellis-Beauregard Foundation will offer a $25,000 fellowship award for a Maine artist working in the visual arts.

The Ellis-Beauregard Foundation, through founders John David Ellis and Joan Beauregard, have created a foundation to support the work of individual artists. The foundation began its operations by initiating four six-month studio residencies in varied genres at the Lincoln Street School in Rockland, accompanied by a stipend.

The foundation is accepting fellowship applications via submittable.com and intends to announce the award by the end of the year.

The Ellis-Beauregard Foundation Fellowship will be accompanied by solo exhibition at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockland. Applications will be juried by a panel of experts from outside of Maine.
