Dorothy McGuinness receives GAP grant from Artist Trust

Last month, Dorothy McGuinness received a 2018 GAP Award funding from Artist Trust. According to the Artist Trust website, she will use the funding, “to showcase some new and dramatic work at two gallery shows next year, allowing her to continue educating viewers that basketry can be more than the functional craft form that often defines and constrains it.” Says Dorothy, “The GAP award will be instrumental in helping me participate in two gallery shows. I really appreciate the vote of confidence.”
