2018 Fellowship Awards

Due March 5, 2018 at midnight PST 

Artist Trust Fellowships are merit-based awards of $7,500 to practicing professional artists of exceptional talent and ability residing in Washington State. These unrestricted awards are given annually to 10+ artists in recognition of artistic excellence and dedication to their practice. The first Fellowship Awards were selected in 1987, making it Artist Trust’s longest- running award program. Beginning in 2018, Fellowship is now open to artists of all disciplines each year and will no longer rotate between disciplines on a two-year cycle.

Artists of color, rural artists, and artists working in emerging fields and heritage arts, such as social practice artists, interdisciplinary artists, traditional artists, and culture bearers, are strongly encouraged to apply. See below for support with your application.

The Twining Humber Award is an unrestricted award of $10,000 given annually to a Washington State female-identified visual artist, age 60 or over, who has dedicated 25 years or more to creating art. The award is made possible by a generous gift from the painter Yvonne Twining Humber (1907-2004), who established the Irving and Yvonne Twining Humber Fund for Artistic Excellence to support the grant through Artist Trust in recognition of female-identified artists who oftentimes must interrupt or postpone art-making in order to answer the demands of family life. The award recognizes artistic excellence, professional accomplishment, and longstanding dedication to the visual arts.
