Application for PAAM’s Annual Artist Grant Now Available

PAAM provincetown art association and museumPROVINCETOWN –The application for the Lillian Orlowsky and William Freed Foundation Grant offered by the Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM) is now available.

Artists selected by the Grant Committee receive a cash award and a group exhibition at PAAM.

The exhibition of the 2015 grant recipients is on view at PAAM through December 4.

The Lillian Orlowsky and William Freed Foundation Grant is awarded annually to under-recognized American painters over the age of 45 who demonstrate financial need.

The mission of this grant is to promote public awareness of and a commitment to American art, and to encourage interest in artists who lack adequate recognition.

The late Lillian Orlowsky and William Freed studied with Hans Hofmann in both New York and Provincetown.

They were very active at PAAM as artist members and instructors in the summer school, and they served on a variety of committees throughout their 50 years on Cape Cod.

Orlowksy, in particular, was sensitive to the challenges artists’ face, especially those working against the mainstream or outside of popular schools of art.

Her desire to provide financial support to mature artists through the endowment gift speaks to her commitment to art for art’s sake and art created regardless of the demands and whims of the market place.

The application for the grant is available at paam.org and the postmark deadline is April 3.
