Vashon artist among ‘adventurous, creative spirits’

Tlingit carver Israel Shotridge, of Vashon, is one of 16 artists nationwide to be awarded a Native Arts and Cultures Foundation Arts Fellowship, the NACF announced recently. The grants, ranging from $10,000 to $20,000 per artist, recognize “Native artists who have made a significant impact in the fields of dance, film, literature, music, traditional and visual arts,” according to fellowship administrators. “The fellowships support these artists as they delve deeper into their practices and cultivate their artistic voices to transport and inspire us. We celebrate their adventurous and creative spirits.”

Shotridge’s work includes significant works in Ketchikan, Alaska; the 12-foot “Hall of Nations” totem at U.S. Forest Service HQ in Washington, D.C., which honors the history of the Civilian Conservation Corps Totem Restoration Project (1939-1953); and the “Eagle/Bear House” screen at Puget Sound Blood Center in Seattle.
