Event Description

THE ASTRAEA LESBIAN VISUAL ARTS FUND PROMOTES the work of contemporary lesbian visual artists. Grants are awarded to artists working in an array of media including sculpture, painting, prints, mixed media and works on paper.

Astraea named Helen Cozza, Jen P. Harris and Ulrike Müller awardees of the 2011 Astraea Visual Arts Fund. Nancy Natale received an honorable mention. The Fund was founded in 2002 to promote the work of contemporary lesbian visual artists who show artistic merit and share Astraea's commitment to visibility and social justice feminism.

Each year, three grants of $2,500 are awarded to artists working in an array of media including sculpture, painting, prints, mixed media and works on paper. Two grants are supported by an endowed gift from founding mother and artist Joan Watts. A third grant is made possible by Skip's Sappho Fund, established at Astraea by a bequest from Skip Neal, a lesbian artist who enjoyed a successful career in museum exhibition.

The awards are determined by a distinguished panel of artists and art professionals. This year's panel included Kimberly Mayhorn, Maia Palileo and Carrie Yamaoka.
