Will Hutnick of Wassaic, N.Y., received a Martha Boschen Porter Fund grant last year to create large works of art on canvas and paper, as well as sculptures. He said this new body of work, which has been exhibited locally and at venues in Chicago and Brooklyn, would not have been possible without the support of the grant. Regional artists in all media may apply for the Martha Boschen Porter Fund by July 15. Photo: John Dolan
