Richard Martinez, assistant professor of art, has been selected to receive a 2013 Artist Trust   Fellowship Grant for Visual Art.     This year 449 applications were reviewed in the disciplines of Visual Art, Folk and Traditional Art, Emerging Fields/Cross-disciplinary Art and Performing Art: 17 recipients were selected.  Artist Trust Fellowships  award Washington State artists based on artistic merit, demonstrated ability, professional achievement and continuing dedication to an artistic discipline.    Artist Trust has been providing support to artists of Washington State through cash grants since the first Fellowships were awarded in 1988.  Grants provide artists with a means to continue exploring their creative paths, and in so doing enrich all of our lives.  Fellowship recipients present a Meet the Artist event to a community in Washington State that has little or no access to the artist and their work.  More information at www.artisttrust.org
