I have been nominated for the 9th Annual Art Award by the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation and am blown away by this honor. 
As an artist, I am used to applying for exhibitions and competitions but this honor had my work being nominated by a committee of local arts leaders and as I already indicated was a tremendous surprise. It is fantastic recognition.

And I am in esteemed company! The Foundation’s nomination webpage details the other artists and designers who have been selected. All of the artists receive a generous nomination award and promotion by the Foundation.

The grand prize is a $7500 commission to create a work for the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation.

I am grateful for this opportunity and thank both the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation and the nominating committee.
