Professor Sue Johnson Awarded Two Residency Fellowships

News Release, St. Mary’s College of Maryland

Sue Johnson, professor of art, has been awarded two residency fellowships in 2019: The Sam and Adele Golden Foundation Residency Fellowship in New York and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts Residency Fellowship in Amherst, Virginia.

The Sam and Adele Golden Foundation for the Arts awarded 18 artists from around the world for its 2019 residency program from more than 320 applications. The program begins in March and runs through October. Residents live and work in a completely renovated 19th-century barn for four weeks and have access to an unlimited supply of acrylics, oils, watercolors and custom materials. 

Virginia Center for the Creative Arts Residency Fellowship is one of the leading artists communities in the world with locations in Amherst, Virginia, and Auvillar, France. The VCCA hosts over 400 fellow-artists at Mt. San Angelo in central Virginia and 40 fellow-artists at the Moulin à Nef in France. The artists who come to VCCA are selected by a peer review jury on the basis of the important or innovative work they are doing in their respective fields.  

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
