We have had success locally from two of our members this week!
Congratulations first to Steven Wolk
"I had a blessing in the art world .I had two paintings juried into the Toronto
Watercolour Society up coming show in November and one of the paintings which is in watercolour called
Tears of Beauty won the Dorothy Blefgen award
WOW............The show is called Aquavision2012 and runs from Nov. 7to 19th. It will be held at the
J.D Carrier Gallery Columbus Centre Upper Gallery 901 Lawrence Ave West
Toronto. I am so HAPPY"
Our second award winner is our student representative Rebecca Kingdon who was awarded Reserve Best in show (student catagory) for her photograph 'A Deadly Stare' in the Vaughan In Focus photography exhibition. The exhibition started this week and will run until November 14th. It can be seen at the Vaughan City Hall. (her photo of the green snake can be seen here on the publicity poster)
It was one of our members Nicol, that encouraged Rebecca to enter. So she would like to say a big thank you.
In her words:
"BWS is a great opportunity for students to make contacts in the real art world and discover and have the confidence to enter other contests and exhibitions"
Congratulations to both Steven and Rebecca!
