Congratulations to Joy Tanner on being awarded a Regional Artist Project Grant (RAPG)! The RAPG program provides the opportunity for regional consortia of local arts councils to award project grants to artists in their regions. These grants support professional artists in any discipline and at any stage in their careers to pursue projects that further their professional development. Joy will use the award to purchase new burners.
And in case you missed it, check out Joy and her husband Will Baker in the December 2018 Ceramics Monthly.
