The Boston Foundation has announced the 2013 Brother Thomas Fellows, receiving unrestricted awards of $15,000:
Ambreen Butt, visual artist
Lorraine Chapman, choreographer
Sean Fielder, tap dance artist
Ekua Holmes, visual artist
Matti Kovler, composer
Megumi Naitoh, ceramics artist
The awards are part of the legacy of Brother Thomas Bezanson, a Benedictine monk whose porcelain ceramics are world-renowned for their mastery and grace. The Boston Foundation worked with Bernie and Sue Pucker from the Pucker Gallery (longtime friends of Brother Thomas) to establish the Brother Thomas Fund, creating a means to support working contemporary artists through the sale of Brother Thomas’s work.
Ambreen Butt, Lorraine Chapman, and Megumi Naitoh are all past awardees of Mass Cultural Council’s Artist Fellowships Program.
Congratulations to all artists nominated and awarded!
