BRUCEBO AND W.B. BRUCE FINE ART SCHOLARSHIPS

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: JANUARY 31 ANNUALLY
Website

Since 1972, the Brucebo Fine Art  Scholarship Foundation of Gotland, Sweden (=BBF) has offered a fine art residency scholarship to younger, talented, emerging Canadian artists aged 40 or younger, preferably painters, thus providing an inspiring study and work stay  in northern Europe  on the island of Gotland located  in the middle of the crisp waters of the Baltic Sea.

The BBF fine  art scholarships  hark back  to the post-impressionist era in Europe – the 1880’s – a time when Paris  was the world  center  of artistic creativity . Two young  artists, Caroline Benedicks of Sweden and William Blair Bruce of Hamilton, Canada,  meet in Paris, marry and after living  many years  on the European continent , settle on history-laden Gotland Island , a Swedish  outpost approximately equidistant between  the Swedish  mainland and the Baltic state of Latvia. With the untimely death  of William ( in 1906), and that of  Caroline ( in 1935 ), the estate , in the early 70’s, created  the Brucebo Fine Art ( Scholarships ) Foundation, an organization promoting island-based cultural history and fine art.  (more…)
