Assistant Professor of Art Nicole Pietrantoni has received a Larry Sommers Fellowship for artistic excellence. The award will support new artistic projects which she will pursue at Anderson Ranch artist residency in Snowmass Village, Colo., during her sabbatical in spring 2015. This new fellowship supports artistic excellence in the areas of print arts, book arts and works on or of paper. The award provides a stipend of $2,000 to produce new work or to support a project in progress. The selected artist is determined by the artistic excellence of the work presented in the application by a panel of arts professionals connected with the fellowship committee of Seattle Print Arts.

Associate Professor of Art Michelle Acuff has a solo exhibition now up at The White Box at the University of Oregon in Portland. The exhibition, titled the immiscible edges (pictured on the right), will be on display until Sept. 13.
