Headlands Center for the Arts is pleased to present Monique van Genderen with the Chiaro Award for painting.
The Chiaro Award is a fully sponsored artist residency and prize for an accomplished mid-career painter residing in the United States. The award is designed to have meaningful impact on the life and career of one artist per year, by both recognizing past success and by fostering their ability to continue to produce exceptional and exemplary work in the medium of painting.
Residencies of six to ten weeks include dedicated use of a private studio, chef-prepared meals, comfortable housing, and a cash award. The Chiaro Awardee will become part of the dynamic community of artists participating in Headlands’ programs, sharing in peer-to-peer creative exchange while developing his or her individual artistic practice.
