Potter and Poet get Fellowships

Two Central Colorado creative types were among the 26 recipients of 1999 Artist Fellowships in Visual Arts, Literature, and Performing Arts from the Colorado Council on the Arts.

They are Blair Meerfield, a Saguache potter, in the visual arts category, and Laurie Wagner Buyer, a Fairplay poet, in the non-fiction literature category.

Each fellowship comes with a $4,000 award, and comes after a review by an expert peer panel, which considered 250 applications, complete with samples, in all categories. Other categories include dance choreography, music composition, and fiction.
