During the last two terms of school I completed the second year painting classes. I had two great teachers -- Megan Wilson and Elizabeth Russell. They are both so knowledgeable and helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed these classes but before I get into these, I was recently pleasantly and MUCH surprised to receive the following email....
We would like to notify you that your piece was selected as a Honourable Mention in the Sculpture category! Congratulations!
This year, the CICan art committee received over 100 submissions. 21 of them were deemed outstanding by the committee and your piece was one of them, chosen as a semi-finalist in one of the 7 catagories.
We were so impressed by your artwork that we invite you to send it to us, where we can proudly display it in our office. We will also add it to our online gallery on the CICan website, which will be seen prominently at CICan’s annual conference.
You may choose to send the original artwork (framed/mounted as appropriate and shipping, at the cost of your institution) to the following address:
Colleges and Institutes Canada
1 Rideau Street, Suite 701
Please know that you are always welcome to drop by our office to view the submitted art pieces, or to simply say hello.
Again, we thank you for your submission(s).
The CICan Art Committee
I decided against sending it in. Only the Finalist receive a monetary award so I decided to keep it in my collection. Here is a picture of it.
That's it for now. I'll update the web with the next term's work next month.
