Finalists announced for the 2023 Baker Artist Awards
We are thrilled to announce the finalists for the 2023 Baker Artist Awards!
These 36 artists were selected from over 600 artists who created a Baker Artist Portfolio in 2023.
The 2023 finalists were selected by an anonymous jury. Selected artists exemplify excellence in three areas: mastery of craft, depth of artistic exploration, and a unique vision. All artists who have received a cumulative total of less than $20,000 in previous prizes remain eligible for a Baker Artist Award.
Since 2009, the Baker Artist Awards has distributed $90,000 in annual prize money, for a total of more than $1.3million to over 150 artists. The 2023 Baker Artist Awardees will be announced in June, with one artist from each of the six artistic disciplines receiving a $10,000 Mary Sawyers Baker Prize. One of the six selected artists will also receive the additional $30,000 Mary Sawyers Imboden Prize, for a total prize of $40,000.
