Learn About Grants for Artists' Progress (GAP) Awards
Dale Hom is a visual artist. Born and raised in Seattle, he lived much of his adult life working as a federal land manager on national forests of the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. Now, he is a working artist residing in Walla Walla, Washington. Self-taught as an artist, his paintings, sculptures, mixed media, and graphic novels reflect a duality of urban and rural insights. His work is influenced by a sense of place, his cultural identity, and human interactions with the natural world. He invites others into his artwork with curiosity, inquiry, humor, and hint of whimsy. His art has served rural and urban communities through various regional publications, public art projects, and local art exhibitions. Currently, he is creating art that reflect a passion of the quintessential American music—jazz, and themes that promote cross-cultural awareness and liberality towards differences. The 2021 Grants for Artists’ Progress Award will be directed towards an upcoming project on hidden histories and legacy of Asian American pioneers in the Pacific Northwest.
