While our Fellowship Program is on pause, we are pleased to announce this new initiative at Lighthouse Works.
Through a series of three programs, Lighthouse Works Together will connect our Fellowship Program’s alumni with our island community to encourage moments of creativity, curiosity, and togetherness – even as we remain apart.
Workshops Hosted via Zoom, these art-making workshops will be designed and led by members of our alumni group. Each 15-student workshop, developed for Teens, Young Adults, and Adults, will utilize a kit that will be available for pickup at Lighthouse Works.
Wonderings We’ve asked past fellowship recipients to create guided individual or family activities based around something they found compelling during their time on Fishers Island. Posted weekly, these activities will encourage you to look, think, and make in the environs of FI.
Coffee Talks Join us for a series of Virtual Studio Visits, hosted twice-a-month by Program Director, Tryn Collins, to catch an intimate view of what is happening in the studios of some of your favorite past fellows. Get an automatically generated invite by emailing
Our LIGHTHOUSE WORKS TOGETHER Workshops and Studio Visits are on-going.
Later this month we will be launching a Reading Group focused on past Lighthouse House Works Fellows. The first book we will be reading and discussing with its author is Angie Cruz’s Dominicana. Stay tuned!
LIGHTHOUSE WORKS TOGETHER is a series of programs that connect past fellowship recipients with our island community, which we hope will encourage moments of creativity, curiosity, and togetherness even as we remain apart.

In this workshop, we will explore the ideas behind a photographic archive. Each participant will get a disposable camera, and using the limits of only 27 exposures, will create their own archive.

Join us for a West Coast Edition of Coffee Talk. We will join by former fellow Zach Trow and his partner Theresa Sterner in their studio in Los Angeles. We are excited to chat about their collaborative work, including their recent show at The Torrance Art Museum. And of course, we will dig into Zach’s time on the island and what their studio practices currently look like.
A schedule of upcoming programs will be available on our website and will be posted to fishersisland.net and the town bulletin board. If you would like to be notified via email of any upcoming program, you can sign up for a bi-monthly Lighthouse Works Together e-blast on our website.
