Little known personal fact: I have a collection of mayor Peter Kelly photos that I keep on my bulletin board (Kelly winning candy basket, Kelly falls off skateboard, Kelly at the harbour, hair blowing in the wind…) Depending on how the voting wind blows (don’t forget, the municipal election is on October 18), I will have another photo to add to my collection after October 17, the night of CANVAS, Visual Arts Nova Scotia’s annual awards. Kelly in beret?
Until then, VANS is seeking nominations for the following: Outstanding Artist of the Year ($500), Art Educator of the Year ($500), VANS Honour Roll and (ah yeah) the Mayor’s Emerging Artist of the Year ($500). Deadline is August 31. For a detailed description of the award qualifications and nomination process, see vans.ednet.ns.ca.
