Veronika Horlik, Art Education instructor with our faculty's Department of Integrated Studies in Education (DISE), has been announced as the recipient of the 2015 RBC Emerging Artist People's Choice Award. The award particularly celebrates the artistic medium of clay. Horlik's winning submission is entitled PROUNS(SLASH), and is a 300-pound ceramic reinterpretation of Japanese video game Katamari Damacy, also drawing inspiration from Horlik's experience with the Canadian reforestation industry.
Richard Lynn Studham, professor emeritus in our Department of Integrated Studies in Education, will be displaying his work A Paragon of Chivalry at Galilee Chapel in Durham, England, this autumn.
