Toronto photographer Al Gilbert (1922-2019) C.M., M.P.A., F.R.P.S, F.l.l.P, M. Photo. Cr., was the older brother of Jack Gilbert who is sponsoring this award. This new award will be granted for the first time in 2021.
Keesha Freskiw, an emerging artist from Coldwater, Ontario, received The Arts and Letters Club Foundation Visual Arts Award during a virtual award presentation of the N3XT Canada-wide art competition held on 17 December.
‘Hats Off’, shows the varied hats Canadians wear, from a firefighter’s helmet and nurse’s cap to a chef’s hat and indigenous ceremonial headdress.
Her piece, done with acrylic paint and modeling paste on canvas, was part of a group of N3XT submissions featured in a recent article in EnRoute, Air Canada’s magazine.
