I have been honoured with an award of merit from the Delta Arts Council's artSpacific exhibition for my piece, "Being Shod". My thanks to the jurors who chose my piece for this award, and my congratulations to the other artists whose work was also recognized at the event. It's the first time I've received a juried award, so I'm very thrilled (although one of my paintings was chosen in a wine label viewer's choice event, and that was also pretty exciting).

If you're able to get to see the show, it is at the Firehall Centre for the Arts (11489 84 Avenue, Delta), until May 29, open 10am to 4:30pm.
