Congratulations to Australian artist (based in Seattle, USA) Melissa Cameronwho was awarded an Artist Trust Fellowship. nArtist Trust is a Washington based organisation that supports Washington State-based artists with a merit based (rather than project-based) award of $7500.

 

The fellowship awards are given to around fifteen artists annually, with the focus on Music, Media, Literary and Craft disciplines every even-numbered year, and Emerging Fields & Cross-Disciplinary, Performing, Visual and Traditional & Folk arts in odd numbered years.

 

In receiving the award, artists commit to: "participating in a Meet the Artist event held outside their place of residency yet within Washington State. The purpose is to outreach to underserved populations that are not aware of the artist and/or have little access to art."

 

Thanks to the award Melissa is currently investigating  a new piece of equipment for the studio, and will be traveling to Erfurt in Germany in August to participate in a two-week enamel residency at the Kuenstlerwerkstaetten with enamel mentors Elizabeth Turrell and Beate Gegenwart.
