Two of the 2010 grant winners work here in the Bay Area. I like Allison Smith's work - quilts, needlework all put together in an intelligent conceptual framework. I am not at all familiar with Ms. Green's work but that type of installation and media work is not my taste. Still, Congratulations! Two of the nine winners are located here and they are both women. That's not too shabby. Now, off to check to see if either one has been reviewed by the esteemed art critic in our local fish wrapper (the one he writes for, not the one I write for).
