PENDLETON — Five Eastern Oregon cultural organizations received a total of $48,000 in Oregon Arts Commission grants for fiscal year 2012-13, the commission announced Tuesday.

Grants this year total $1.2 million statewide to Oregon arts organizations through operating support, arts services and arts learning programs.

• Arts East, the Eastern Oregon Regional Arts Council, received two grants, for $6,000 and $3,000, to support arts services across 10 Eastern Oregon counties through an artist-in-residence program and Community School for the Arts. The latter project involves reaching out to rural K-12 schools where arts instruction is limited or no longer exists.

• The Arts Council of Pendleton was awarded $7,000 in operating support for performances, exhibitions, gallery operations and arts education.

• Crow’s Shadow Institute, the Native American-run visual arts center outside Pendleton, was granted $3,000 in operating support.

• Fishtrap Inc., of Enterprise, received $8,000 in operating support, and a grant of $3,000 went to Wallowa Valley Music Alliance for educational programming and an annual summer music festival.
