The Voulkos Visiting Artist Fellowship was created in memory of the renowned ceramic artist, Peter Voulkos. His family and friends established the Fellowship at the Archie Bray Foundation to invite a distinguished artist to work at the Bray each year. Peter Voulkos taught by example, working alongside other artists in the studio, fostering artistic exchange and dialogue, and nurturing mutual respect. In the same spirit, the Voulkos Fellow is invited to work in an environment that encourages interaction among the artists and the Bray community.
