The SOLA Award

SOLA stands for Support of Old Lady Artists. Founded in 2016 by Seattle artist Ginny Ruffner, the SOLA Award seeks to encourage and celebrate accomplished women artists whose work has not been sufficiently or widely recognized. The award seeks to honor these women for their lifetime contribution to the arts and to recognize and reward their energy, vision, persistence and dedication to maintaining creative momentum over the long haul.
