Wave Farm is delighted to announce our first Radio Artist Fellowship, a nine-month, grant-supported, part-time engagement for an American radio artist with strong interests in the history of radio art and related practices. The Fellowship will combine remote work with a minimum of three on-site visits to the Wave Farm Study Center in Acra and WGXC Hudson Studio in New York’s Upper Hudson Valley. Details of the site visit schedule, will be determined in collaboration with the selected artist.

The Wave Farm Radio Artist Fellow will work closely with Wave Farm’s Executive Director, Galen Joseph-Hunter, and Artistic Director, Tom Roe, and will communicate regularly with Fellowship Mentors: Anna Friz, Joan Schuman, and Gregory Whitehead.

Introducing the New
WGXC: Radio for Open Ears T-Shirts 

Artwork by Rebecca Gray.

We are thrilled to unveil Rebecca Gray's WGXC T-shirt artwork, selected from last month's open call. The new WGXC: Radio for Open Ears T-shirt is available in black and white in adult sizes and cuts. (Youth sizes by special request.)

Many thanks to Rebecca, and FusionLab who helped bring this project to life.

Rebecca Bray is an artist and interaction designer who lives in Leeds, NY, just outside the village of Catskill. She is the Managing Director of the Center for Artistic Activism (c4aa.org), was the Chief of Experience Design at the Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum, and makes visual art and interactive installations (thebrayverconcern.com) about social and environmental issues. She hadn’t realized before this how much she enjoys drawing ears.

WGXC T-shirts are $25. They are available for sale at the Hudson and Acra studios or by mail (additional s&h fees apply.)

Wave Farm thanks you for your support.

Wave Farm remains tirelessly committed to making the airwaves a participatory medium. A pioneer of the Transmission Arts genre, Wave Farm programs provide access to transmission technologies and support artists and organizations that engage with media as an art form.

These activities are made possible, in part, from state and federal art grants, foundation support, earned income derived from studio rentals and special curatorial/consulting engagements, and from private support from individuals like you. Listeners, attendees, and collaborators support provides a critical piece to keeping Wave Farm programs afloat, and we are grateful to the many individuals who have shown their generosity past, present, and future.


Wave Farm programs are made possible, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; the National Endowment for the Arts; The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; the Greene County Legislature through the County Initiative Program, administered in Greene County by the Greene County Council on the Arts; the Alexander and Marjorie Hover Foundation; the Foundation for Contemporary Arts; the T. Backer Fund; the Joseph Family Charitable Trust; and hundreds of other generous individual donors.
