About the Fellowship

In 2021, the Joan Mitchell Foundation reconceived and relaunched our primary granting program to more actively explore the ways in which multi-year financial support can help artists transform their practices and secure their legacies. Central to the structure of our Fellowship is longitudinal support that recognizes that the greatest benefits of fellowship opportunities are often nurtured over time, through sustained engagement and relationship-building.

The Fellowship’s monetary award for recipients extends over a five year period, with an initial $20,000 payment this year followed by four years of $10,000 installments. The Foundation also provides opportunities for artists to engage in programs that focus on personal finance, legacy planning, and self-advocacy, among other opportunities. Layered into the support structure are annual in-person convenings that build connections among the Fellows and virtual engagement sessions that further foster a peer learning community.

“The 2023 cohort of Joan Mitchell Fellows again underscores the value of a multi-year program, as it brings together a group of artists with diverse practices, interests, and backgrounds, all of whom articulated, in their Fellowship applications, the impact that financial and professional support over time will have on their work and their lives,” said Christa Blatchford, Executive Director at the Joan Mitchell Foundation. "This commitment to extended engagement is also in line with the legacy of Joan Mitchell herself, who so often offered personal assistance to other artists, and whose directive for her foundation was to continue that approach of direct support for working artists.”

Nature Walkers (group exhibition)

Exhibition dates: May 30 - Friday, June 16, 2023

Opening Reception: Sat, June 3, 5-7PM

Artists: Eric Diehl, Jaanika Peerna, Zachary Skinner, Jackie Skrzynski, Sharon Strauss, Kazumi Tanaka, and Jayoung Yoon

ACC gallery: 17-19 Washington Street, Tenafly, NJ 07670 (2nd floor, CVS building)

Gallery Hours: Wed-Fri, 1-6PM & Sat, 2-6PM or by appointment


The 'Nature Walkers' exhibition brings together a diverse collection of artworks that explore different facets of our natural world, including its beauty, its fragility, and its connection to our everyday lives. The exhibition features a variety of media, including paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures and will be on view at ACC gallery from May 30 to June 16, 2023.

Each of the artists in the exhibition offers a unique perspective on nature and its role in our lives. Eric Diehl's paintings of automobiles in US American landscapes mimic the form of cinematic imagery, commenting on contemporary life. Jaanika Peerna's work captures natural processes through drawings, installations, and participatory performances that incorporate line and water, while prompting audiences to reflect on the loss of natural ice through her Glacier Elegies project. Zac Skinner draws attention to the damage that humans have inflicted on the environment, and to the need to adapt to the evolving ecosphere. Jackie Skrzynski collapses the perception of interior and exterior space by suggesting similarities between botany and anatomy, providing a sense of connection with a larger natural system. Sharon Strauss works with collections and communities of things to capture a moment in time, exploring the intersection of place and identity. Kazumi Tanaka's sculptures are made of earthy materials and natural ink drawings which offer a meditative reflection on the beauty and fragility of life. Jayoung Yoon draws inspiration from Buddhist philosophy, collecting natural materials around the Hudson Valley and meticulously weaving them together with her own hair to convey the fleeting and ephemeral nature of our existence.

These seven artists use nature and its elements as a primary source of inspiration for their art. Some explore the ephemeral wonder of nature, inviting visitors to contemplate the intricacies of the natural world and the impermanence that underlies its constant cycles of growth and decay. Others offer a timely reminder of the fragility of ecosystems, human’s impact, and our responsibility to protect and preserve the natural world. Whether through contemporary realist landscapes, or abstract representations of natural phenomena, each work in the exhibition invites viewers to slow down, observe, and appreciate the wonders of the world around us.

The exhibition offers a distinct and multifaceted perspective on the complex relationship between humanity and nature and encourages viewers to connect with the natural world in a deeper, more meaningful way.

Women's Printmaking Invitational 2022

Presented by Rubber City Prints and hosted by Kent State University at Stark.

Curated by Erica Criss.

Exhibition Dates: February 9 - March 4, 2022

Location: The William J. and Pearle F. Lemmon Visiting Artist Gallery at Kent State University at Stark

Address: 6000 Frank Avenue NW, North Canton, OH 44720

Gallery Hours: Monday - Friday 11;00am - 5:00pm

The exhibition is also on view online at


Rubber City Prints is excited to launch the Women’s Printmaking Invitational (WPI) 2022, hosted by Kent State University at Stark. Now, more than ever, women command the fine art printmaking field and deserve to have their unique perspectives showcased. The goal of this exhibition is to highlight women printmakers and give them a space to connect and support each other. Their voices may express a diverse range of imagery, content, and processes, but they are united by their shared experience of being a woman in the once male-dominated world of printmaking.

Rubber City Prints was started by a group of women printmakers from Kent State University who were about to lose their studios because they would be graduating. It was their goal, and RCP’s mission, to offer local artists the facilities and opportunities needed for the art community to thrive in downtown Akron, Ohio.

We are excited to have Erica Criss, an original founder of RCP and MFA graduate of Kent State University, as our curator for this exhibition. For the past 10 years, Criss has worked in New York City in the non-profit art sector across functions such as program development, operations, exhibition development, and fundraising. She has produced dozens of exhibitions, nationally and internationally, most notably, the NY International Miniature Print Exhibition and the Print Effect: Small Works/Big Impact. Criss also curated Divergent Ink at Rubber City Prints. She continues to support artists and nonprofits through her consulting business, CRISS Collaborations.

Artist Talk
Artist Talk:
Jayoung Yoon
Tuesday, November 30, 2021 | 5 PM
"Hair has the potential to embody both mind and matter. In my sculptures I tie hair together piece by piece into nearly invisible forms that represent ineffable thoughts and the conscious and subconscious mind." - Jayoung Yoon
Jayoung Yoon's work is composed of strands of her own hair that are hand knotted or woven into forms to create intricate sculptures. The woven hair resembles fine nets or webs, allowing the viewer to see through the strands, giving the work a delicate transparency, while the material lends the work a feeling of intimacy and envelopment.
One of the three artists featured in Interlacement: A Group Exhibition at The Korea Society, Yoon discusses her art and career.


In this group exhibition, three artists challenge and redefine the conventional idea of fiber and textile art by employing already-established techniques of weaving, embroidery, and assemblage with new materials and creating and inventing new forms. Featuring the work of Woomin Kim, Sui Park, and Jayoung Yoon.

Social Distancing Studio Visits by Caroline Kipp

"A new series where we'll be getting a peek into the lives of artists as they fill us in on how they're navigating art making, social distancing and quarantine in the wake of the current global crisis. My hope is these visits will provide you with a bit of solace and connection, serving as a reminder that you're not alone in whatever you may be feeling during this unprecedented moment."- Caroline Kipp

The Seeds of Creation by Cosmina Ene

"40 artists express their feelings during the 2020 pandemic confinement. The 2020 Virus has spread fear and anxiety around the world during the first months of this year. All human lives have been affected by the lock-down and by the various problems it has generated. Continuing my investigation on “The Seeds of Creation,” I have undertaken a new study among my fellow artists to understand how they have dealt with this particular period. I have submitted the same interview to many artists active in the New York City area, and 40 of them have accepted to share their answers or their stories. I have achieved this research during the “stay-at-home” period." - Cosmina Ene

With its different textures, grooming practices, interpretations, and symbolic values, hair provides a unique and timely entry point to understanding racialised and gendered belonging among different communities. Artists have long used hair as a material in art practice. Here, they explore hair as a material with affective potential and as a signifier of identity."

17 Pearl St. NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503
Gallery Hours: Wednesday - Saturday: 12 - 4 PM

"Amidst social media bombardment and consumerist exchange, alienation overwhelms us and superficiality has become the norm. Pressed for time, we feel pressured to sacrifice those intangibles of existence that lack marketable value: intimacy, silence, and self-reflection. Yet a quiet protest has arisen. Introverted and OCD presents a collection of finely crafted works from artists who, mark by mark and incision by incision, grasp for a life of substance. Whether it’s the slow, constant crusade against the surge of impersonally digital hearts, likes, and emojis or the schizophrenic exertion to stay present in the moment, incessant repetition both distinguishes and unifies these artists’ processes."

Artists: Craig Dongoski, Marie N. Guex, Meg Hitchock, Lucha Rodriguez, Joseph Shelter, Alex Kvares, Kevin J. Lucey, Jeffry Mitchell, Maureen Nollette, Tia Weirenga, Jayoung Yoon

"We are living in a twenty first century of diversification and descent. Art is defying and celebrating traditional systems of structure and process. New forms and material properties create intersections of constructed and found, two and three dimensions, painting and sculpture. Work can be both deliberate and random. The artists explore material, color and form in contemporary art with great skill and manipulation, each constructing a personal and formal language that melds material, dimension and process with resonating forms that rupture our notion of space and how an artwork must function."

An exhibition dedicated to artists defining the contemporary paradigm of abstraction for their own ends.

The group exhibition puts forward ten female artists whose artwork express deeply personal thoughts, emotional energies, and societal commentary. Through a variety of works the show examines the role and representation of women in contemporary society. Viewed as a whole, the exhibition exemplifies how various forms of art making allow for nonverbal communication on a deeply personal level, communications that are often more powerful or truthful than the verbal or the written. The works create a dialogue between the viewer and the artwork that is filtered through uniquely female experiences and perspectives, inviting viewers to question modern social and political landscapes.

Between I & Thou includes artists from many different areas of the globe, exploring
interconnections between the personal, cultural, religious and national. The works reflect the human need to tell the story of self and society, offering a rich conversation about the sameness and differentness among us. There is an emphasis on the inclusion of senior artists whose works cogently reflect lives lived across significant changes in history.

The artists in Land and Time confront monumental transformations through video, sculpture, performance, and painting, embracing time as a palpable element in their work. These artists mine forgotten histories or expose imagined landscapes, reminding us that every “landscape is not a record but a recording,” polyvalent and multivocal. Land and time are in flux, unable to be pinned down, frozen, or commodified. And yet, they reflect upon us.

Soft Power

Soft Power is a group exhibition which explores notions of human condition and power dynamics through the use of hand manipulation of “soft” malleable materials such as felt, fabric, canvas and human hair. The artworks include sculptural objects, wall hangings, canvas constructions and performance. United by their use of soft materials and the handmade, each artist uniquely activates their own space of inquiry, evoking their own relationship to place, body, space and time.

“Eighteen” exhibits the work of Dev Harlan , Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong and Jayoung Yoon — three artists working in sculpture, installation and transformation over time. The title of the show references the spatial concept of Gallery Usagi; architect Sou Fujimoto’s design is based on eighteen movable panels that divide, striate and give impermeability to our space. In “18”, the panels are used not as surfaces to display 2D work, but as interventions in space that divide time.

Review in ArtNet News

"Jayoung Yoon's sculptures from her "Form and Emptiness" series consist of meticulous woven mesh boxes, hung from the ceiling. Each cradles a different geometric form at its heart, and all are woven from strands of human hair. The resulting little abstract sculptures feel both intimate and elegant."

2015 Kreft Juried National Exhibition examines and illustrates the relationship between these two entities. Coupling them immediately suggests pairs of opposites: physical and metaphysical, flesh and spirit, earth and heaven. How do we live in the body and yet recognize and celebrate the soul? How is one manifested through the other? What do they tell us about the nature of human personhood? What might it mean to be “soulful”?

Anne Wilson's Performance, 'To Cross (Walking New York)'

I am participated in Anne Wilson's group performance, 'To Cross (Walking New York)' in conjunction with the exhibition Thread Lines at The Drawing Center, NY.

"The piece’s four participants will “walk” around the twelve foot columns, carrying a spool of thread to form a standard weaving cross (a method used to keep warp threads in order). The durational performance, which will take place over the course of two months, will result in the fabrication of a five by thirty-four foot sculpture: a colorful cross composed of innumerable strands of thread." - Ref.; The Drawing Center

I will perform these sundays.
