PADDLE GRANT 2021 AWARD WINNER
We are proud to announce Ariel Bullion Ecklund as the winner of the first Annual $500 Paddle Grant.
Ariel Bullion Ecklund is an artist, curator, and designer, who lives and works in upstate New York. She is owner / creative director of Corners Gallery in Ithaca, NY. Ariel, who holds advanced degrees in Fine Art Photography and Museum Studies, has shown her work in a variety of local galleries and venues including State of the Art Gallery, Tompkins County Public Library, Petrune Gallery, The Unitarian Church of Ithaca, Trumansburg Conservatory of Fine Arts and Ithaca Artist's Market.
As a competitive grant, proposals were judged in “blind” readings by Mark Costa, director TCFA; Marina Delaney co-founder CayAC; and Andrea Murray TCFA board member and Lead Educator, Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University.
Funds from this year's Paddle Grant will go towards helping Ariel expand her expertise in the area of ceramics at The Clay School of Ithaca which will result in an exhibit in 2022.
If you are interested in exhibiting your work at the Tompkins Trust Bank in Trumansburg, please contact our new Bank Curator Don Ellis at email@example.com
