Seattle-based arts resource group Artist Trust has announced the recipients of its 2010 Grants for Artist Projects (GAP) program. The annual GAP awards provide up to $1,500 to individual artists for projects in the visual, performing and literary arts. This year a total of $90,000 was awarded to artists around the state.
Among the 62 recipients were Olympia felt artist Janice Arnold and two Tacoma artists: painter Nicholas Nyland and ceramicist Yuki Nakamura.
This year’s GAP awards fund projects ranging from novel-writing time, travel, studio repairs, safety equipment and website development. The recipients were selected by a review panel made up of artists, past grant recipients and arts professionals from around the state. Selection criteria include artistic excellence and project feasibility. GAP recipients’ projects will be posted on Artist Trust’s website later this month.
