These are the artists shortlisted for the Henry Art Gallery's new award, The Brink: Respectively, Isabelle Pauwels (Vancouver, B.C.), Gareth Moore (Vancouver, B.C.), Isaac Layman (Seattle), Matt Browning (Seattle), Aaron Flint Jamison (Portland), and the apparently basically un-Googlable Alex Felton (Portland) (that last image came up under his name, but we have no idea what or whether it has to do with him).

The prize is $12,500 plus a solo show at the Henry, and the winner will be announced April 17.

What do I think of this list? I'll tell you when I find out more about Jamison, Moore, Felton, and Pauwels.
