Jasmine Greer

Jasmine Greer, associate professor of art at Arkansas Tech University, has earned an individual artist fellowship from the Arkansas Arts Council.

According to information provided by the Arkansas Arts Council, its individual artist fellowships are unconditional, non-matching awards made directly to Arkansas artists. An independent panel annually selects nine artists in rotating categories to receive fellowships of $4,000 each. Artists from around the state submitted applications for the fellowships in three categories: painting, excluding works on paper, director of theatre and screenwriting.

The Arkansas Arts Council will recognize and honor fellowship recipients in a special, virtual program at 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15, at and
