Ingrid Restemayer Receives Artist Initiative Grant

Today the Minnesota State Arts Board met to consider and approve the FY 2012 panel recommendations for the Artist Initiative grant program. These grants are given to support artistic development, nurture artistic creativity, and recognize the contributions individual artists make to the creative environment of the state of Minnesota. I am honored to be one of the grantees. My plan is to use the funding for the production of ten to fifteen new pieces of work that incorporate embroidery, dyed papers, and hand-pulled print collages. Once complete, I plan to exhibit this work at a college or university gallery within the state of Minnesota.

The list of those receiving FY 2012 grants is shown in alphabetical order and is now available online at

Many thanks to the Minnesota State Arts Board and it's supporters.
