I am very excited to be one of eight artists selected to receive a LIAEP grant for international travel in 2015-2016! I will be using the grant to conduct research in the ancient holy city of Varanasi in India.
The awardees were selected from applicants representing a wide range of artistic mediums. Applications were made from foreign countries and from across the United States. The 2015 LIAEP Award recipients represent ceramics, painting, performance, digital media and textiles and will use the grant support to take advantage of a stimulating range of work and study opportunities. Jurors for the 2015 cycle include founder Linda Lighton; Rose Dergan, Gagosian Gallery, NY; Danny Orrendorf, Threewalls Gallery, Chicago; Christopher Leitch, artist, Kansas City, MO.
