Meet the Artist: Erin Pringle-Toungate
Erin Pringle-Toungate,
The Floating Order, Two Ravens Press Ltd, 2009.
Friday, July 25, 2014, 2-3pm: Touchmark, Spokane

2012 Fellowship recipient Erin Pringle-Toungate will offer a Meet the Artist event at the Touchmark assisted living community. It will include a reading of her work, a Q & A, and a writing activity.

Free and open to the public!

Artist Trust's Meet the Artist program is an integral component of the annual Artist Trust Fellowships. Every Fellowship recipient presents an event outside of their geographic area of residence or to a community that would not ordinarily have access to their work. Meet the Artist bridges our artistic community with the diverse communities in Washington State, increasing awareness about the vital roles the arts and artists play in our culture.

In Memoriam: Jini Dellaccio, 1917-2014
Jini Dellaccio was more just than an incredible photographer, best known for her iconic portraits of famous musicians including Neil Young, Merrilee Rush, The Sonics and The Wailers. As a teen during the Great Depression, Jini played sax with the "Girl Groups" of the era, giving her a lifelong affinity for the scruffy musicians that would become the focus of her work as a master photographer. Her iconic images of seminal Northwest rock 'n' roll bands from the early- to mid-1960s capture the aesthetics and attitudes of these influential groups. 
Jini was also an enchanting, dynamic, generous and joyful friend to many, including Artist Trust. Her generosity continues: her estate requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Carl & Jini Dellaccio Scholarship Fund at Artist Trust. Thank you, Jini! We miss you already.
