The Artist Trust is inviting nominations for the Irving and Yvonne Twining Humber Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement.
The unrestricted award of $10,000 award is given annually to a female visual artist, age 60 or over, from Washington State who has dedicated twenty-five years or more of her life to creating art. The award recognizes creative excellence, professional accomplishment, and dedication to the visual arts.
This award was established by a gift to the Artist Trust Endowment from Yvonne Twining Humber. A practicing Washington State artist herself, Twining envisioned providing recognition to female artists who, oftentimes, have had to interrupt or postpone their art-making to answer the demands of family life.
Any resident of the United States may nominate a female artist who is 60 years of age or older, has dedicated twenty-five years or more to creating art, and is a resident of Washington State resident at the time of nomination and payment.
The application form will be available on February 11, 2019. Completed applications must be received no later than March 11, 2019.
See the Artist Trust website for complete program guidelines and nomination instructions.
