Welcome to the Alden Mason Foundation.

Double Cross Sisters 1992 Acrylic on Canvas

Established in 2017, the Alden Mason Foundation was formed to sustain and celebrate Alden Mason’s extraordinary legacy as one of the Pacific Northwest’s most prominent artist and to acknowledge his influence on several generations of students as a professor of art at the University of Washington.

Since it’s inception, the foundation has published a comprehensive monograph about the work and life of Alden Mason, contributed and assisted in the organization of a major survey of Alden’s work at the Bellevue Art Museum and provided an endowed yearly scholarship in Alden’s name to a candidate in the MFA program at the University of Washington.

Alden was always generous with time and support to younger artists who’s work he felt deserved recognition. With this in mind and Alden’s wish to help foster a vibrant art community, the foundation will establish a fellowship program offering a cash award to an active Washington State artist beginning in the fall of 2023.

Information for the upcoming “call for art” can be found at our website’s News & Events page and on our Instagram and Facebook pages. A call for art will also be broadcast through the usual art channels, art organization news letters and publications.
