Governor General Awards NAC Artists!
If you want to see the best visual and media artists in the nation, you need look no further than your down-home Artist-run Centre, NAC.
The Governor General’s Visual and Media Arts Awards were announced on 15 February. Of the eight individuals awarded, two were good friends of NAC and recent exhibitors at our centre. For the quantitatively inclined that’s an astonishing 25%, or one quarter, of this year’s winners connected to NAC!
Congratulations to Shelley Niro and Mike Hoolboom. Videos about these whip-smart artists and kind-as-peach-pie people are on the Canada Council’s website right here. Congratulations to both, it’s well-earned and high time!
