They are: Photographer Geneviève Cadieux, visual artist Robert Fones, performance and visual artist Michael Morris, filmmakers David Rimmer and Barbara Sternberg and painter Shirley Wiitasalo, each for distinguished artistic achievement. Metalsmith Kye-Yeon Son won the Saidye Bronfman Award for excellence in fine crafts.

Of special interest, to me is that art critic Nancy Tousley (formerly art critic at the Calgary Herald, and contributor to Canadian Art magazine, among others) received the Outstanding Contribution Award for her 30 year career.

Nice one, Nancy!
