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?
