Brink Award goes to Seattle artist Anne Fenton

A couple of noteworthy arts awards:

—The Henry announces Seattle artist Anne Fenton is the winner of the 2013 Brink Award. Fenton receives $12,500 and will have a solo exhibition at the Henry, accompanied by a publication next spring. The Henry will also add a Fenton work to its permanent collection. Fenton, the founder of Crawl Space Gallery (2003-09), received a BFA in photography from the University of Washington and attended the Mountain School of Arts in Los Angeles. After a break of a few years from the public art scene, she re-emerged in “[Moment Magnitude],” the recent big multimedia/live performance exhibition at the Frye.

The Brink, established by longtime Henry benefactors/Seattle philanthropists John and Shari Behnke,  is an award for emerging artists 35 and younger in Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia “on the brink” of a professional career.

—Seattle Art Museum announces photographer/media artist LaToya Ruby Frazier as the winner of the 2013 Gwendolyn Knight and Jacob Lawrence Prize. Frazier will receive $10,000 and her work will be featured in a solo exhibition at SAM in December. Her most recent installation, “A Haunted Capital,” at the Brooklyn Museum, comprises  photographs highlighting the effects of de-industrialization on her hometown of Braddock, Pa.

The Gwendolyn Knight and Jacob Lawrence Prize is awarded biannually to an early-career black artist who has been producing work for less than 10 years.
