Read stories from artists & our community!
Throughout our end of year campaign, we’ve been asking artists how they persist in their practice. What keeps an artist from throwing in the towel? For Julie Gautier-Downes, visual artist, and 2016 GAP recipient it’s about a personal commitment to her work.
Today you have helped us raise over $2,500 in celebration of our GAP awards – and there’s still time left! We only have $500 left to reach our goal! We’ve had so much fun celebrating with you and are excited to end Giving Tuesday 2019 on a high note.
We’re only halfway through Giving Tuesday, and you’ve already helped us raise over $1,500, funding one GAP Award! We are amazed at your generous support! Our goal before the day is out is to fund one more GAP! Remember, your donations of any amount will be generously stretched by the Artist Trust Board of Directors – if you have yet to donate, this is the perfect time to maximize your gift.
Good morning, and happy Giving Tuesday! Today we’re raising funds for Grants for Artists Projects (GAP), with the goal of funding two GAP awards. This important grant for artists of all disciplines across Washington State is made possible thanks to generous community members like you.
Congratulations to Johanna Stoberock on receiving the 2019 LaSalle Storyteller Award!
In thinking about the act of persistence, Romson Bustillo, visual artist, and 2019 Fellowship recipient chooses to turn the conversation around and question how we as a community can make the act of persistence possible for an artist.
