Congrats to both Mr. Jerry LaMothe and Mr Alrick Brown on their recognition.

The nearly 50,000 professional artists who call New Jersey home form the very heart of the cultural community of this state. And this is just the tip of the iceberg when one considers the thousands more for whom artistic creation, performance and interpretation are a vocational, cultural, religious or recreational interest of the highest personal and community priority. Artists are the creative capital of our communities and this is why it is the Arts Council's goal to promote them, encourage them, assist them to achieve their highest ambitions and help a wider public understand and appreciate all that artists do to make New Jersey a better place.

The Council supports artists in several important ways, through a wide array of programs and services that recognizes, encourages and showcases their talents. In turn, such recognition brings their work to the attention of organizations and communities everywhere to embrace and support this remarkable "creative capital" that helps make New Jersey great.

Individual Artist Fellowship Grants: Highly competitive awards to New Jersey artists in 12 different arts disciplines awarded solely on independent peer panel assessment of artistic quality taken from work samples submitted. The process is anonymous. The awards may be used to support the professional development of the artist. This program is carried out in partnership with the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation.

Here are this year's (2013) Fellowship recipients:
