Support Provided

Arts Innovator Award

An unrestricted award of $25,000 given annually to two Washington State generative artists, who are originating new work, experimenting with new ideas, taking risks and pushing the boundaries in their respective fields. The award recognizes artists of all disciplines who demonstrate innovation in their art practice.

Irving and Yvonne Twining Humber Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement

This unrestricted award is given annually to a Washington State female visual artist, age 60 or over, who has dedicated 25 or more years of her life to creating art. The award recognizes creative excellence, professional accomplishment and dedication to the visual arts.


Fellowships award $7,500 to 20 practicing professional artists of exceptional talent and demonstrated ability. The Fellowship is a merit-based, not project-based, award. Fellowship recipients must present a Meet the Artist event to a community that has little or no access to the artist and their work.

Claire Short Ireland Residency

Created by the generosity of donors Emer Dooley and Rob Short, this residency provides a one-month stay in West Cork, Ireland plus a $5,000 award to one Fellowship semi-finalist.

Grants for Artist Projects (GAP)

GAPs provide up to $1,500 for 60 artist-generated projects, which can include (but are not limited to) the development, completion or presentation of new work in all artistic disciplines.

Centrum Residency

This residency provides accommodations and access to the studios and resources at Centrum, a gathering place for artists and creative thinkers from around the world, located at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA. Residency recipients are chosen from Grants for Artist Projects recipients.

Conductive Garboil Grant

An annual award for Seattle artists of all disciplines who have a connection to the Pioneer Square neighborhood and have demonstrated an ability to challenge the limits of conductive creative discourse and its effects on society, pushing the creative act beyond the accepted limits, definitions or purposes of art while engaging audiences outside the aesthetic industrial complex.
