COURTESY MACDOWELL COLONY

The MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire, has named the 86 fellows for its late winter and spring residencies. Each fellowship has an average value of $10,000, and this season’s fellows were selected from a pool of 846 applicants.

Among this round’s fellows are film artist Tamar Baruch, performance artist Joseph Keckler, playwright Annie Baker, poet Victoria Chang, and landscape architect Jane Hutton. Over 80 percent of these fellows are first-time participants in the residency program, and half are women.

Cheryl Young, the executive director of the MacDowell Colony, said in a statement, “From cutting edge film to bold new directions in electronic music, and from topical theatre to new approaches in multi-disciplinary design, this group of fellows represents a stunning array of creative approaches to make new work destined to delight art lovers far and wide. The sheer diversity of talent, discipline, and cultural perspectives defined by these artists is part of the formula that makes a MacDowell Fellowship so unique and rewarding.”
