First round of ‘New Normal’ artist winners selected

First round of ‘New Normal’ artist winners selected

The Fine Line Group and its partners announced winners of the first round of awards in The New Normal: An Artist’s Response to COVID-19. The program challenges local visual artists to create works that reflect their experience living through the pandemic as members of the Fort Worth area community.

Following a competitive selection process, which included juried review of applicant proposals and portfolios, 13 Fort Worth artists received $2,000 each to fund a COVID-19-inspired work. View the winners’ work.

In late April, the Fine Line Group in partnership with Gallery of Dreams announced the launch of the $100,000 initiative to help Fort Worth’s visual artists get back to work.

Artists may submit applications for round-two awards through May 26, with winners announced May 31. Round-three applications will be accepted May 27-June 10, with winners announced June 15. Following the round-three announcement, The New Normal will announce six artists selected to receive an additional $3,000 to further support their work.
