Placement Gallery announces the first recipient of The Yuri Arajs Artist Development Grant


Placement Gallery is pleased to announce the first ever recipient of The Yuri Arajs Artist Development Grant.

This is the first year of the Yuri Arajs Artist Development Grant. The purpose of this grant is to give an artist the opportunity to have direct support from a professional curator and artist working in the arts community. This will allow the recipient to have one-on-one time to discuss their work critically, have portfolio reviews, and plan how to help promote and develop their work.

This year, the grant was offered to an artist from RESOURCE / Spectrum Community Mental Health; an organization that enables people to achieve greater personal, social and economic success by providing employment, training, mental health and chemical health services. You can learn more about them at www.resource-mn.org.

This year’s grant recipient is Audrey Bernard. Her art work and information about the artist is available online at Audrey’s blog; artistaudrey.blogspot.com

In receiving this years grant, Audrey will receive a $100 art supplies gift card, 1000 full color postcards with her art on them to use for promotional purposes, and 2 studio visits with Yuri Arajs.
