Voulkos Fellow Artists

The Voulkos Visiting Artist Fellowship was created in memory of the renowned ceramic artist, Peter Voulkos who began his career at the Archie Bray Foundation in 1951. His family and friends established the Fellowship at the Bray to be awarded each year to a special and distinguished visiting artist whose generosity, commitment to innovation, and passion for creative exchange through shared ideas reflect Pete’s spirit.

Peter Voulkos taught by example, working along side 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 resident artists and the Bray community.
