Artist Trust (AT) Fellowships are merit-based awards recognizing artistic achievement, dedication to an artistic discipline, and potential for continued creative development. In 2017, 14 artists working in Cross-Disciplinary/Emerging Fields, Performing, Traditional/Folk, and Visual Arts will receive $7,500 in unrestricted Fellowship funding. In addition to these 14 artists, AT is partnering with The Millay Colony for the Arts (Millay) in upstate New York to award two artists with one-month residencies and $1,000 stipends. Fellowship applicants expressing interest in the residency will have the opportunity to be selected and may receive either a Fellowship or a residency at Millay — not both.

AT Fellowships are awarded in two-year cycles. The 2017 Fellowships are open to generative artists residing in Washington State working in the disciplines of Cross-Disciplinary/Emerging Fields, Performing, Traditional/Folk, and Visual Arts. (Fellowships for artists working in Music, Media, Craft, and Literary Arts will be available again in 2018.)

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 grant through Artist Trust (AT) to recognize female-identified artists who oftentimes must interrupt or postpone art-making in order to answer the demands of family life.

The award recognizes creative excellence, professional accomplishment, and longstanding dedication to the visual arts.
