Jack Gilbert Image Arts Award

Board member Catherine Hurley and award recipient Leyla Godfrey


On November 15, 2018, the Foundation awarded its first Jack Gilbert Image Arts Award in partnership with Ryerson University’s School of Image Arts to Leyla Godfrey at a ceremony celebrating Ryerson’s seventieth anniversary. She received a $500 award and a six-month complimentary membership to The Arts and Letters Club. Leila will attend a future meeting of the Club’s Hot Shots Group and her work will be displayed in the Club's Photography Show this spring.

Your generous award helps to recognize our students for their hard work, talent and dedication to their studies,” said Blake Fitzpatrick, Chair of the School of Image Arts.
