Governor General’s Awards in Visual and Media Arts

Looking to get a little culture in your life? Head downtown to the National Gallery of Canada this weekend and check out the works by winners of the 2014 Governor General’s Awards in Visual and Media Arts. (You’ll be dazzled!)

This year’s winners are Toronto sculptor Kim Adams, Dartmouth weaver and notebook keeper Sandra Brownlee, Toronto visual artist Max Dean, Montreal performance and installation artist Raymond Gervais, Montreal photographer and artist Angela Grauerholz and Vancouver media artist Jayce Salloum. What’s more, there’s not one but two local residents in this list of award winners. They’re Ottawa curator Brydon Smith and Ottawa painter Carol Wainio.
