Saint John Arts Awards 'The Originals'

I'm a finalist in the Emerging Artist category for the Saint John 225 Arts Awards 'The Originals' - results will be announced in a gala event at Imperial Theatre on Thursday, June 10. Tickets are $25, available at the Imperial Theatre box office. 

I'm nominated with visual artist Jack Bishop and actor Tim Turnell, which alone is amazing because these guys are just awesome. I remember visiting the Saint John Art Club when I was in high school to watch Jack paint - and seeing Tim in the title role of Macbeth at one of the Saint John Shakespeare Society productions. So talented. And Saint John is lucky to have these two living as artists in the city. 

Ok. So everybody should come out for this event. It's a great way to access and support the local art scene. And kudos to the 225 folks for having the vision to organize an evening like this.
