“All the artists I talked to were honored and touched to be recognized by the Edmonton Arts community as part of their award process," said curator Emily Baker. “They all have the similar feelings of gratitude and a little bit of surprise and really feeling seen for their incredible work that was created on their own terms.”

The Eldon + Anne Foote Edmonton Visual Arts Prize has recognized outstanding artists from the Edmonton region for the past 10 years.

The Art Gallery of St. Albert is hosting an exhibit of their work in association with the Visual Arts Prize to mark the anniversary.

The three most recent award winners, Lauren Crazybull, aAron Munson and Gillian Willans, join the artists on the 2021 award short list, Emmanuel Osahor, duo Sharon Rose Kootenay and Jason Symington, and this year’s prize recipient, Preston Pavlis, who was awarded $6,000 for the win.

“All the artists I talked to were honored and touched to be recognized by the Edmonton Arts community as part of their award process," said curator Emily Baker. “They all have the similar feelings of gratitude and a little bit of surprise and really feeling seen for their incredible work that was created on their own terms.”

The exhibit can be seen at the Art Gallery of St. Albert on Tuesdays to Fridays from 1 to 5 p.m., and on Saturdays from 10 to 5 p.m. until Feb. 5th.
