Art students honoured for work

Three local art students have earned provincial recognition.

The B.C. Arts Council has awarded scholarships to Alicia Venables of Armstrong ($5,000), Lacia Vogel of Enderby ($5,000) and Sarah Franklin of Coldstream ($3,100).

“Students who show determination and a strong work ethic deserve to be recognized for their efforts,” said Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster.

Venables is studying music at the San Francisco Conservatory of Mysic. Vogel is currently attending the University of Regina, studying visual arts, while Franklin is studying at the University of B.C.

“These scholarships reward some of the most creative and talented artists in B.C. so it is an incredible honour that these students from our region receive this very high honour,” said Greg Kyllo, Shuswap MLA.

As B.C.’s lead agency for arts funding and development, the B.C. Arts Council enlists the expertise of artists to evaluate grant applications through a peer review process independent of government.

Established in 1995, the B.C. Arts Council consults with the arts and culture community to develop policies, programs and strategic priorities for the sector.
