Are you a member of ARTIST TRUST ?

As a member of the visual arts community, I am always looking for new resources about and for artists.
One of my favorite organizations is called Artist Trust, an organization whose mission statement is as follows:
Artist Trust is a not-for-profit organization whose sole mission is to support and encourage individual artists working in all disciplines in order to enrich community life throughout Washington State. To accomplish its mission, Artist Trust raises funds from an array of sources in order to:

Give financial grants, through a peer review process, to individual artists working in the visual, performing, media, literary, and interdisciplinary arts;

Serve as a professional information resource for artists and encourage artists to support each other; and,

Provide recognition and support for the contributions artists make to the lives of people of Washington State and for the merit and integrity of artists’ work.

To do all this their membership is $ 45 annual.  In these times, organizations  like ARTIST Trust need our support, by joining we help in their work. I am joining,  will you?

About ruthoffen

Created by, Ruth Offen the founder/director of WaterWorks Gallery, a gallery opened in 1985 to showcase contemporary artists and jewellers that live and work in the Pacific Northwest. The gallery is on an San Juan Island in the Salish Sea.[ North Puget Sound] Pretty amazing place. While continuing to curate the gallery after 33 years, I'm decided to spend more time enjoying life by traveling, creating art with photography and dancing tango. Over many decades of amassing a personal art collection, now the process of downsizing is becoming a reality. How do we have more with less? Staying true to the motto, unencumbered by our possessions and not burdening our children with our stuff. This next process will take patience and courage.
