ARTIST AWARDED ... Linda Gass, a textile artist who has her studio at Palo Alto's Cubberley Studios, is one of six artists receiving an Artist Fellowship Grant from Arts Council Silicon Valley in San Jose. The six were honored at a reception at the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara, and Gass has several works on exhibit at the Triton through June 20.

The artists receive fellowships of up to $4,000 each to "enable them to continue to pursue their creative work," according to a press release. They also include South Bay actor Aldo Billingslea, who was seen locally earlier this year in TheatreWorks' "Radio Golf."

Gass creates art quilts, land art, mixed-media works and paintings. Recently, her pieces have explored land-use issues at San Francisco Bay. The stitched painting on silk "Treatment?" depicts the Palo Alto Regional Water Quality Control Plant and raises questions about sewage generation and processing.
