The annual National Jewellery Student Competition, hosted through Ottawa's L.A. Pai Gallery, recognizes the work of Canadian students' technical excellence, ingenuity, and strength of creative vision. A maximum of 5 students win placement in the exhibition/competition, one of whom is named a winner.
The 2012 jurors are:
Jonathan Browns, Cultural Planner, Fine Art Collection, City of Ottawa
John Cook, Principal, Griffiths, Rankin, Cook
Alan C. Elder, Curator, Canadian Crafts and Design, Canadian Museum of Civilization
Peter Simpson, arts editor at large, Ottawa Citizen
Rene Villeneuve, Associate Curator of Canadian Art, National Gallery of Canada
The award was announced during the opening reception on July 29 and I am happy to say that I was the first place recipient of this competition. The exhibition of my work, along with the work of the other fnalists, will be on display until August 19. I have been offered a solo exhibition at L.A. Pai Gallery in 2013, which I am eager to start working toward!
