Seattle architects, painter honored

The American Academy in Rome has awarded Seattle architecture duo Daniel Mihalyo and Annie Han of Lead Pencil Studio a 2007-08 Rome prize for their proposed "Spatial Inquiry: Looking at Nothing in Rome." Mihalyo and Han blur the edge between architectural and art projects. The team have created installations for the Henry Art Gallery, Maryhill Museum of Art and the Lawrimore Project Gallery. Award winners receive a stipend, studio and room and board at the Academy for from six months to two years.

Another local artist was also recently recognized. The Gottlieb Foundation in New York granted $25,000 to Seattle painter T. Michael Gardiner to support his work. He was one of 12 applicants selected for the grant.

Gardiner studied at Cornish College of the Arts and the University of Washington after earning a bachelor of arts degree in 1969 at St. Thomas' Seminary in Kenmore. His figurative paintings have been shown at the Henry Art Gallery, the Bellevue Arts Museum and various galleries, including the former Linda Cannon and Manolides. Gardiner has also created a number of illustrations for the New Yorker magazine.
