Ann Street Gallery Emerging Artist Fellowship program aims to provide a supportive platform for early-career or under-recognized artists in Newburgh and the Hudson Valley, with a focus on artists from historically marginalized communities. The fellowship provides three artists with opportunities for mentorship, networking, and professional development as well as a $2000 USD materials and supplies allowance, a cohort exhibition in the  gallery during Newburgh Open Studios, and individual guidance toward identifying goals and further opportunities.

The Fellowship strives to create artists a supportive platform for experimental and substantive growth for a six month fellowship from June through November 2024. Located in the heart of Newburgh NY, Ann Street Gallery is situated at the nexus of community and the arts. Through the Fellowship, fellows have direct access to ASG's and SHOH's exhibitions and programming, explore the resources offered by Newburgh’s vibrant arts scene and cultural institutions, and the possibility to connect and engage with arts professionals and practitioners based in Newburgh and surrounding areas, and those participating in ASG and SHOH programming.
