Foundation Award

My friend Lisa Kinoshita was just named winner of The Greater Tacoma Community Foundation’s Third Annual “Foundation of Art Award.”

Way to go, Lisa!

A committee of local art professionals nominated 9 visual artists currently living in Pierce County for the award. The other nominees included Neil Andersson, Victoria Bjorklund, Kyle Dillehay, Jeremy Gregory, Lance Kagey, Dan Parker, James Porter and Toot Reid.

An on-line gallery is available at showcasing images of each nominee’s artwork, as well as professional background information for each artist.

The previous two winners include Chris Sharp in 2008 and Jeremy Mangan in 2009. I recently reviewed Mangan's show at Fulcrum Gallery.

The annual program was established by the Community Foundation to honor professional artists living and working in Pierce County.

Lisa is the founder and owner of Mineral, a metals studio and art gallery in Tacoma
