NEW YORK, NY.- The Nancy Graves Foundation announces the recipients of its annual Nancy Graves Grant for Visual Artists. Established by the artist, the Nancy Graves Grant for Visual Artists supports artists wishing to work in a technique, medium or discipline that is different from the one for which they are primarily recognized.

Ron Bechet, based in New Orleans, LA, is known for his large black and white charcoal murals and installations that reference transformation, place and ancestry. He plans to cast large sculptures using the lost wax technique.

Dylan Hausthor, based on Peaks Island, ME, is known for his documentary filmmaking and photography. He plans to build a large wooden sculptural structure as a site for experimental narrative performance projects.

Anna Hepler, based in Greenfield, MA, is known for her immersive installations and suspended sculptures made from a wide range of materials. She plans to construct a ceramic sculpture built to billboard proportions.

Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen, based in Bethel, ME, are known for their warehouse-sized immersive environments and large sculptures using paper as their medium. They plan to experiment with steel and translating their work into public spaces.

Nominators from different parts of the country were invited to propose several artists, who were invited to apply. A panel of independent jurors reviewed the applications and selected the grantees.

Each artist received an award of $12,500.00.

Nancy Graves (1939-1995) is an American artist of international renown. Graves developed a sustained body of sculptures, paintings, drawings, watercolors, and prints. She also produced five avant-garde films and created innovative set designs. Her work has been featured in hundreds of museum and gallery exhibitions worldwide and is in the permanent collections of major art museums. The Nancy Graves Foundation, established by the artist, is dedicated to deepening knowledge of the visual arts by exploring the work and life of Nancy Graves within the context of her era.

In addition to providing grants to individual visual artists, the Foundation supports exhibitions, research, publications, educational programming and the preparation of a Catalogue Raisonné. The Foundation maintains a collection of Nancy Graves’ work. A library and archive of original papers, photographs, recordings, publications and research materials is available to scholars by appointment in the Foundation’s research library.
