Lighthouse Works is pleased to welcome Beverly Acha, Jibade-Kahlil Huffman, Kristy Luck and Katherine Taylor to Fishers Island. Our Fall ’17 Fellows were selected by independent panels from a pool of over 800 applicants and will be in residence from August 29 until October 10, 2017. While our fellows’ primary obligation is to the solitary pursuit of their creative work, we do ask every artist to participate in a few events.
