Award of $10,000 to a Washington artist to acknowledge achievements in the visual arts over the course of at least 25 years. The award is intended to honor a women artist over the age of 60 who is committed to the visual arts discipline. Applications are evaluated on the basis of artistic excellence, the professional background of the artist, and evidence of longstanding dedication to visual arts. Artists of color and artists outside of King County are strongly encouraged to apply.

The Twining Humber Award is an unrestricted award given annually to a Washington State female-identified visual artist, age 60 or over, who has dedicated 25 years or more to creating art. The award is given in recognition of female-identified artists who oftentimes must interrupt or postpone art-making in order to answer the demands of family life. The award recognizes artistic excellence, professional accomplishment, and longstanding dedication to the visual arts.
