Worcester Art Museum Awards Five Kinnicutt Grants to Worcester Residents

Monday, August 06, 2012

 

Five Worcester residents: Deborah Aframe, Ani Baronian, Eve Mayberger, Jacquelyn Stein, and Sarah Williams are recipients of the Kinnicutt Travel/ Study grants for 2013 from the Worcester Art Museum. The annual grants, which were first awarded in 1949, are offered to women to travel abroad and acquaint themselves with the arts of other countries.

“This year, we received quite a diverse collection of entries from women who aspire to travel to some pretty unique places around the world,” says Elaine Pusateri Cowan, Kinnicutt Chairperson. “The Worcester Art Museum community is looking forward to hearing about and sharing their experiences once their studies are complete.”

Aframe, the museum’s librarian will travel to the Netherlands to continue research on her genealogical roots. She also has a longstanding interest in the Golden Age of Dutch art, and will visit the home of Rembrandt, the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, the Anne Frank house, Frans Hals Museum, and St. Brovo's church.

Baronian lived in the United Kingdom for five years and received her master's degree from the Glasgow School of Art. A practicing artist she plans to reconnect with artist friends in the United Kingdom, attend the Frieze Art Fair and visit museums and galleries.

Mayberger's interest in India began in college, where she majored in art history with a concentration in Asian Art. She plans to visit Mughal and Rajput as well as nearby Buddhist and Hindu caves and temple complexes.

Stein is looking forward to researching the Group of Seven by traveling to the various sites in Canada where they painted and re-created the same "plein-air" experiences. Also known as the Algonquin School this artist group believed a distinct Canadian art could be developed through direct contact with nature and used the Canadian landscape as the foundation of their movement.

Williams will use her award to travel to the Netherlands to study CAD/CAM at the European Ceramic Work Center. As a ceramic artist, she sees great potential for using this 3-dimensional technology in her work.

Officially called the Frances A. Kinnicutt Travel/Study Awards, the grants provide partial travel funding (up to 50 percent) and are granted based on merit. Award recipients are also encouraged to give an informal presentation at the museum following the completion of their trip.
