SIERRA ARTS NEWS RELEASES

Sierra ArtsSierra Arts Foundation announces its recipients for the 2013 Grants To Artists program.

These grants, reinstated after a four-year hiatus due to financial constraints, support local professional and student artists in four major disciplines: visual, literary, performance and music. The moneys are independent of any project but are awarded instead as a celebration of artistic merit as a member of our community.

This year’s $1000 professional recipients are as follows:

  • Visual – Jennifer Graham, Ahren Hertel, Blanco de San Ramon, Joseph DeLappe, and Emily Rogers
  • Literary – Tee Iseminger and June Sylvester Saraceno
  • Performance – Mary Bennett, Sandra Neace, and Pan Pantoja
  • Music – Dustin Budish and Bryan Jones.

The John and Rose Ascuaga Student Artist Award of $500 goes to musician Blake Feldman. The George Hutchinson Student Artist Award of $500 goes to visual artist Molly Allen.

As part of their selection to receive these awards, all of the artists will participate in a group exhibition in the Sierra Arts Gallery at 17 So. Virginia St. from July 2 through Aug. 2 with an artist reception on Friday, July 12, from 5 to 7 p.m. This reception is free, open to the public and sponsored by Wild River Grille.
