Nominate for the Gallery of Honour now

Every two years, Quesnel chooses to honour those who make contributions to the arts in the community

It’s hard to believe it’s been two years since the last Gallery of Honour recipients were celebrated. But it has and that means it’s time once again to consider nominating people who have made significant contributions to the community through the arts over many years, as artists, as educators, as friends and as advocates for the arts.

There are three categories of nominations including youth, (up to the age of 26), adult and posthumous.

A committee reviews the nominations and each person selected in each category receives a plaque commemorating their selection as well as their photograph with a name plate that will hang in the Artrium at the Arts and Recreation Centre.

Deadline for submissions for the Gallery of Honour is Jan. 15, 2016. Nomination forms are available at the Quesnel Art Gallery, the Quesnel Visitors’ Centre, the Arts and Recreation Centre front desk and at the Quesnel Cariboo Observer.

Included in the nomination package should be at least one letter of support and other supportive materials can be copied and included, such as awards won, clippings, photos and articles that relate to what the person has accomplished in the arts field.

You may use up to two pages of 8 1/2 X 11 paper to include the information resume of the candidate.

The more biographical and artistic information that can be provided, the stronger the nomination.

Completed forms may be dropped off at the Arts and Recreation Centre or mailed to the Quesnel and District Community Arts Council, 500 North Star Road, Quesnel, B.C. V2J 5P6 Attention: Gallery of Honour Committee.

The date for the Awards Ceremony will be announced in February 2016 with details to follow.

For information contact Cathy Heinzelman, 250-747-3864 or email nstar@goldcity.net.
