Congratulations to Joy Garnett

Anonymous Was A Woman has announced the 10 artists selected to receive the Foundation's ninth annual awards. The "no strings" grant of $25,000 enables women over 35, at a critical juncture in their lives or careers, to continue to grow, recover from traumatic life events, and pursue their work.

As the name implies, the nominators and those associated with the program are un-named, and artists are unaware that they are being considered for the award.

From the Floor has the details.

I should note that another recipient is the wonderful performer and playwright Carmelita Tropicana. I will never forget seeing her perform Your Kunst Is Your Waffen (Your Art Is Your Weapon). I first encountered her at Dixon Place.
