I meant to post this days ago, but a big congratulations to Leo Berk and Margie Livingston, inaugural recipients of the 2010 Arts Innovator Award.

Ribbon by Leo Saul Berk
Douglas fir veneer, 101"
"This is the inaugural year of the $25,000 award, now the largest grant available to individual artists in Washington State. Supported by The Dale and Leslie Chihuly Foundation, the Arts Innovator Award is given annually to two Washington State artists, working in any discipline, who demonstrate innovation in their art practice by originating new work, experimenting with new ideas, taking risks, and pushing the boundaries in their respective fields."
Study for Spiral Block #5 by Margie Livingston
Acrylic, 2.25" x 3.5" x 2.4

I really like these paint blocks by Margie. If you're interested in the one above, it's for sale at this Friday's SOIL auction.

Also, congratulations to Tim Cross - he was the big winner of Kirkland Arts Center 2010 REDUX Studio Challenge!
