2012–2013 Anne Ray intern Lisa Hsu Barrera has been awarded the inaugural Ralph T. Coe Fellowship. The fellowship is awarded to an individual whose work promotes a holistic view of Native arts, working with both contemporary and historic art through an interdisciplinary methodology. While a fellow, Barrera’s responsibilities will include assisting in the Coe Foundation’s upcoming exhibition at the Santa Fe Show in August. Her fellowship runs from July to August 2013.
Ingalik-Athabascan miniature dollmaker and SAR 2013 Ronald and Susan Dubin Native artist fellow Glenda McKay was recently honored with a visiting artist/researcher grant from the Burke Museum in Seattle, Washington. The grant is intended to give non-University of Washington artists and other researchers access to Burke Museum resources for research on art from the Pacific Northwest region (Alaska, British Columbia, Washington State, Idaho, and Oregon). As part of her award, McKay will research Alaskan bags, pouches, dolls, and weapons. She will be at the Burke Museum from August 26–30, 2013.
