Received word that I was awarded the Rhode Island State Council for the Arts Grant in Painting for 2014.
Here is what Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee had to say about it in the letter I received:
“The RISCA Awards are highly competitive and are designed to recognize and support artists doing exemplary work.
I believe strongly that artists, musicians, theatres, galleries, historic and heritage organizations, curators, designers, writers, film and media professionals, architects, and other developers of new ideas and intellectual property are critical to Rhode Island’s economy and its reputation as a ‘state of the arts’. You should be proud that your contribution has been so recognized by RISCA as important to our state”.
I am honored and humbled to receive this award.
