State arts council awards grants
The Alaska State Council on the Arts awarded grants to a Juneau artist and a Juneau artistic group at its annual June meeting.
Jane Terzis, a painter, received an $800 Career Opportunity Grant for a solo show at the Anchorage Museum. The Juneau Lyric Opera was awarded a $775 Workshop Grant for a workshop with Byron McGilvray.
"A lot of what our grants are designed to do is to encourage arts activities in communities," said Helen Howarth, director of the council. "That workshop grant is designed to encourage increased access to professional level arts experiences."
Perseverance Theater, Juneau Arts and Humanities Council and Juneau Jazz and Classics also received larger Operating Support Grants.
