Local Artists Feed and Fund Each Other

by Paula Newton January 14, 2015

DykonIn spite of Houston’s miserable weather on Sunday evening, lots of folks came out to find out the results of two local micro grants at galleryHOMELAND.

The entrants for the charge grant were all participants in last November’s two-day charge: practicum seminar at Art League Houston (ALH). The $10 participation fee and the bar totals at the seminar’s dance party added up to $889, all of which went towards the grant. The Heimbinder Family Foundation and artist Dario Robleto matched the grant, which was nice, because the charge participants voted and it turned out to be a tie! (To view the proposals and the interesting voting criteria, go here.) The winners:

DYKON FAGATRON by Anna Elise Johnson

The School of Experimental Work: Audio-Visual series by Charisse Weston

galleryHOMELAND put together its own micro grant; for a donation, guests received a big bowl of soup and an opportunity to vote for a nominee of the HOMELAND SOUP grant. One artist was the recipient of the $678 raised at the event. The winner:

Sebastien Boncy

Congratulations to all!
