Congratulations to this year’s recipients! The goal of the Individual Artist Grants is to support the creation of new work or project(s) by eligible artistic professionals.
This year, artists who live or have a permanent studio on Bainbridge Island were eligible to apply. Applicants provided details of their ongoing or upcoming projects. Each projects’ artistic merit and the artist’s financial need as it relates to their practice were taken into consideration. Grants of up to $1,000 are being awarded.
This years recipients are: Kristin Tollefson, Alisa Steck, Karen Cornell, Diance Bonciolini, Pam Galvani, Pamela Wachtler and Katie Jennings.
“The most personally exciting part of this is that I will be pursuing an idea that I hope will resonate with others here in our community. I look forward to the interchange of ideas that I anticipate will result from my printmaking and painting project.” – Pamela Galvani
“Thank you for the love and support, meaningful at any time but especially right now. I’m looking forward to sharing my process and project with the greater community in the coming months.” – Kristin Tollefson
AHB is thrilled to continue to offer this artist-centric vehicle for the benefit of the Bainbridge Island arts and cultural community.
