More arts honors

A couple of announcements came in to ArtsPage HQ today:

Artist Trust has named the Paul V. Allen Family Foundation and Nancy Alvord (and her late husband, Ellsworth Alvord) the winners of the organization’s Creative Catalyst Awards, for support of Artist Trust and the artists it represents. Poet Frances McCue wrote a poem in honor of the Alvords, while the Allen Foundation was given a three-dimensional graphical score by sound artist Trimpin. Trimpin’s work often takes a little extra explanation, so here’s the deal, right from the Artist Trust announcement: “The score can be scanned by a video camera which sends a digital signal to a smart phone, which in turn activated the mechanics of a toy piano to perform the composition.”

Tacoma Art Museum has announced the artists who will show in TAM’s 10th “Northwest Biennial,” Jan. 21-May 20. Out of 179 submissions, 30 were chosen. The biennial will focus on “the ever-increasing ways we define ourselves as a region and as a community,” according to the museum. Seattle artists chosen: Wynne Greenwood; Sean M. Johnson; Susie J. Lee; Paul Pauper; Paul Rucker; and Seattle Catalog LLC, created by Greenwood, Gretchen Bennett and Matthew Offenbacher.
