Jun 7, 2017

Novato (June 5, 2017) The Pirkle Jones Fund (PJF), established to honor Marin photographer Pirkle Jones who died in 2009, has named Ido Yoshimoto, a resident of Inverness, as the seventh recipient of a grant from its Visual Artist Support Program. The program supports promising emerging and mid-career artists living in Marin County, California. The woodworker, arborist and artist will receive a grant of $25,000.

The PJF Visual Arts Support Program grant aims to recognize, encourage, and nurture artistic imagination and drive, commitment to the creative process, aesthetic standards, and artistic potential.

"It is such an honor to be receiving this award”, said Mr. Yoshimoto. “It is both positive affirmation for what I am doing creatively and a huge financial support to help me continue on this path. I am really excited to tackle new projects that until now felt daunting."

Yoshimoto’s work has been exhibited in the Bay Area at the Berkeley Art Museum (BAM), Bolinas Museum, Gallery Route One, Ogaard Gallery, Midway Gallery, Sweeney Kaye Gallery, and internationally at Curator's Cube in Tokyo. Yoshimoto works as chief sculpture restorer and facilities manager at the JB Blunk Estate.
