Congratulations to all the recipients! According to the Oregon Arts Commission’s web site, “Peer‐review panels of artists and arts professionals from across Oregon recommended the recipients to the Arts Commission. The Fellowship program alternates between visual and performing/literary artists. Visual artists will once again be recognized in 2010.”
