Kate Newby
Recipient of Painters & Sculptors Grant 2019
Joan Mitchell Foundation

The Joan Mitchell Foundation has recognised Kate Newby, awarding her in the 2019 Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors Grant program.

The Painters & Sculptors Grants program was first launched 26 years ago, with the vision to both nurture artistic endeavor and provide critical support for the real-life needs of working artists. Since then more than 500 artists—at varying stages of their careers and from 46 states as well as Puerto Rico—have received Painters & Sculptors Grants. The Foundation’s commitment to providing this type of unrestricted support reflects our belief in empowering artists to make decisions that will advance their careers and fulfills artist Joan Mitchell’s wish to provide artists with the time and means to both explore and create new work.
