Thanks to Zoe Strauss for the heads up on this year’s new USA Fellows, bringing to 5 the number of Philadelphia artists who have received the $50,000 award now in its second year.

The 2008 winners who we claim for Philadelphia are Terry Adkins, Judith Schaechter and we’re going to claim Philly native and PAFA alum Barkley L. Hendricks as ours too even though he doesn’t live here now.

Adkins, sculptor and UPenn professor shows locally at Pageant Gallery and has shown at ICA. Schaechter, stained artist and teacher, shows at Claire Oliver in New York and just had a piece permanently installed at the new Museum of Arts and Design in New York. Hendricks has a show upcoming about a year from now at PAFA.

Strauss herself — who’s got a show at New York’s Silverstein opening Nov. 22 –got the $50,000 award last year, as did local dance phenom Rennie Harris. Each year, 50 artists get named through an anonymous nomination process. By the way, Strauss’s book, America, is now available at Amazon, etc.
