  • The Mona Lisa Roberts Visual Arts Fellowship supports a visual artist (graphic novelist/comics artist, painter, photographer, fabric artist, paper artist, etc.) who self-identifies as LGBTQ and lives in the Pacific Northwest (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington) or the provinces of western Canada (British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon). This fellowship funds a two-week residency during summer (June, July, or August) and transit from Seattle, Portland, or points between. Depending on the medium and artist’s preference, they can work in the studio room where they sleep, spread out in the gym, or improvise outdoors.

  • Art Opportunity for Adults – Eagle Artists’ Group

    Yep, I know everyone’s very busy with holiday preparations. However, if you are reading this you are already taking a time-out from the hustle and bustle.

    I originated the Eagle Artists’ Group to provide a quiet and supportive environment where one could start or continue working on an artwork. Leave the distractions at home and the “world” at the studio doorstep. Give yourself permission to create in an un-instructed, self-guided class. We are a small group of very focused artists, during class. We do talk about art and artists and we can request a critique from the our fellow artists, anytime. I will continue to facilitate the class. Just click the following link to join us: https://goo.gl/d1DAN4

    Thank you and Season’s Greetings!

  • CRATER LAKE ART RESIDENCY

    Hey Friends,

    I did this art residency in SW Oregon for 2 weeks last September 2018 and through it was wonderful. I stayed in a cool old stone cottage in the park and had a delightful roommate, also an artist resident. It is not just for painters, and not even just for visual artists (though they lean that way). If this sounds like your sort of thing, check it out here:

    https://www.nps.gov/rlc/craterlake/artist-in-residence.htm

    Postmark deadline for applications is January 10, 2019.

    If you have any questions, I would be happy to help.

    The Idaho Humane Society’s 3rd annual Sip n Purr fundraiser for our shelter cat programs is just around the corner! We are looking for some cool, local cat art to use for event logo and promotional material. This is an excellent way to showcase your talents and help homeless animals in the process.
