Artists from Chiloquin, Eugene, Portland honored
Hallie Ford Fellows in the Visual Arts 2020
A jury of five arts professionals from within and outside of Oregon selected Natalie Ball of Chiloquin, Iván Carmona of Portland, and Donald Morgan of Eugene as the 2020 Hallie Ford Fellows in the Visual Arts. They were chosen from a competitive pool of 180 applicants. Each received a $35,000 unrestricted award and will join 40 of their peers selected over the last 10 years as Hallie Ford Fellows.
“These three artists approach their craft in personal and deeply studied ways,” says Anne Kubisch, president of the Foundation. “Each is masterful, and each contributes to an ever-expanding artistic landscape in this state.”
The 2020 recipients were selected in June based on the following criteria:
Quality of work: Artists exhibit artistic excellence, exemplary talent, and depth of sophisticated exploration.
Evolution of work: Artists stand at a pivotal point in their practices and would benefit from a Fellowship at this point in their careers.
Impact of work: Artists’ goals are consistent with Fellowship goals, and they show potential for future accomplishment and capacity to contribute significantly to Oregon’s visual arts ecology.
