Big congratulations to alumna Elizabeth Malaska who has been awarded a $25,000 Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant. Malaska was represented for many years by Nationale gallery and is currently represented by Russo Lee Gallery. As reported by the Oregonian:

The Portland-based feminist painter and faculty member at Pacific Northwest College of Art and Oregon College of Art and Craft has focused in recent years on redefining how women’s bodies are portrayed. She is a previous Joan Mitchell Foundation nominee, has been honored by the Oregon Arts Commission and Regional Arts and Culture Council, and is a 2018 Hallie Ford Fellow. She is represented by Russo Lee Gallery, 805 N.W. 21st Ave., Portland, and will have a show there in November. She’ll also curate a show there at the same time.
