Dear Meredith 

Art extracts a price. It demands that you open yourself, listen, see, be both adventurous and willing to fail. It asks that you venture towards what is not known, but is there and to reveal it to the community which needs to know but is not able to make the journey. Art extracts a price from the artists. One’s personal life, family life, home and income pay the price.

In recognition for your achievement and dedication as an artist, the Tanne Foundation is pleased toward you this award…..

Sincerely, 

 Foundation Trustee
