Thank you for putting this together, Asia! It was a wonderful group. 3232 Hi Michelle!

Thank you for reaching out. I look forward to hearing more.

I have also been searching out independent sources of funding, and I just found out about a grant through Artist Trust called the Arts Innovator grant. I would love to have a recommendation letter from you Because I will largely be talking about this exhibition in my proposal, to submit with my application.

The application is due in 4 days, which I know is short notice, and you also aren’t overly familiar with my work, so if 

that could help me be more stable while building a body of work for this show you are willing, I could write a skeleton letter that you could tweak/personalize.

Let me know!

Satpreet 

This is what they ask for: either way! f

YES! So. I am applying for a big grant and they ask for only one letter of recommendation. So I needed a big name. So I asked Steve at Pratt. But he emailed me back a few nights ago (I asked about two weeks ago) and said that he’s out of town. So is out of town. So And since I am going to be using some of the funding for a gorup show coming up at Wing Luke, I decided to ask the Executiive Director of the museum

But I don’t really know her, so I offered to draft something, and she said yes

SO basically I am drafting something that she will personalize/tweak. UghI offered to do this, but why?

I retracted my request from Davida because I realized that it’s really not the time for me to be asking her to do more work for me. But said she would, so it’s all good.

In her work, Satpreet the short time that I am very excited to be working with Satpreet, not only because her work, which innovative in both technique and concept, is so relevant to the state of art and politics today, but also because, in the short time that she has been in Seattle, she has been able to establish herself as an emerging talent with so much to offer to the Seattle art scene. 

is In the past year, Satpreet has created four new bodies of work that have continued to the bounary of art, craft, and access. By combining craft materials and practices with formalistic fine art aesethtics, Satpreet bridges the gap between the art and craft world, while also speaking to the insurlar and often exclusive state of the ceontmporary art world e had four solo shows, and each new body of workhas and techniques and concepts art and craft in a thoughtful, evocative way and unique She addresses the idea of access and value, both through material language, and by bringing the experiences of marginalized communities into white box gallery spaces.

and her commitment to community engagement and involvement requires more resources for her to continue to develop and perfect. The Arts Innovator Award would give her the stability and time that she needs to continue to grow her practice and capabilities as an artist who is willing to have hard conversations while also pushing boundaries with materials and techniques.

In the coming year, I am greatly looking forward to continuing to work with Satpreet as she delves into more in-depth and ambitious creating bodies of work. Havin established herself as a talented and prolific artist in Washington state, she is well-poised to move onto the next step of her career. The money and prestige from the Arts Innovator Award will help make this transition as ease the burdern on her to make this transition alone. y that will be displayed at the WIng Luke Museum , but a lack of financial stability makes this difficult for her to do on her own as she makes this transition, and will help her focus on her strengths: making work that not only pushes the way we think about art, but also challenges the way we think about the world.

on pushing her art practice 

the continual growth and expansion of her art practice. 

PLease feel free to contact me should you like to discuss Satpreet’s experience further. and qualifications
