NEW: ArtsWorcester Announces New Material Needs Grant Recipients

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

 

ArtsWorcester has announced the recipients of the first round of Material Needs Grants. Forty artists applied for these grants, which have been funded for three consecutive years by an anonymous benefactor. The grants support the expense of supplies and materials needed to create new art in Worcester County.

This year's recipients are: Matt Abelson, $900, for film and printing paper for photographs of engineering works in natural settings; Steve Butler, $800, for bending plywood, copper foil, and cherry hardwood to create two end-tables; Grace Cherubino, $650, wood panels and paint, for triptychs documenting transgendered people; John LaPrade, $500, for pearls and stamps for mixed-media works; Rose LeBeau, $500, for supplies to create mixed-media assemblages; Irina Parfenova, $1,000, for models to create paintings of Massachusetts through immigrant eye; Emily Sandagata, $650, for rubber, paint, and canvas to create sculptures exploring survival, decay, childhood, death, and growth.

The art created with these funds will be featured in an ArtsWorcester exhibit during the Fall of 2014.

Another $5,000 will be awarded next year. Proposals will be solicited from ArtsWorcester members in Fall 2013.
