Last Call for 2014 Conductive Garboil Grant
2013 Conductive Garboil Grant recipient Christian French.
Deadline: August 11, 2014

Are you a Seattle artist of any discipline who has a connection to the Pioneer Square neighborhood? Have you demonstrated a profound ability to challenge the limits of conductive creative discourse and its effects on our society? Have you pushed the creative act beyond the accepted limits, definitions or purposes of art while engaging audiences outside the aesthetic industrial complex?
You are? You have? Then apply for the 2014 Conductive Garboil Grant!
This grant is administered by The Estate of Su Job, 4Culture and Artist Trust.
Jini Dellaccio Photographs Benefit Artist Trust

Don't miss this special showing of photographs from the Jini Dellaccio Collection. All sales of prints and any donations will go in her honor to the Carl & Jini Dellaccio Scholarship Fund at Artist Trust.

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!

As a Legacy Specialist in Artist Trust's Creating a Living Legacy (CALL) Program, my role is to assist artists with documenting and archiving their life's work. To my delight, I was paired with cartoonist Jim Woodring in this role. The Woodrings are longtime family friends and I knew that organizing his artwork would be a pleasure-and a treat!
