Dana Lynn Louis named one of ten 2024 Visual Artist Fellows

The Arts Commission's Fellowship program is open to more than 20,000 artists from all disciplines who call Oregon home. Applicants to the program are reviewed by panels of Oregon arts professionals who consider artists of outstanding talent, demonstrated ability and commitment to the creation of new work(s). The Arts Commission reviews and acts on the panel's recommendations for fellowship recipients. A total of 143 applications were received for 2024 Visual Arts Fellowships. Visual and performing artists are honored in alternating years.


The review panel for 2024 Fellowships was chaired by Arts Commissioner Jenny Green and included arts professionals Claire Burbridge, Ben Buswell (a 2018 Arts Commission Artist Fellow) and Erik Geschke (2012 and 2020 Fellow) and Matthew Letzelter, the director of the Watershed Center for Fine Art Publishing and Research.
