Nancy Petry Award Announced

Nancy PetryThe RCA and the Joseph Plaskett Foundation are thrilled that there is now going to be a second prize! We are thrilled that Nancy Petry, a long time friend of Joseph Plaskett has come forward to offer The Nancy Petry Award. This will be good news to all the applicants, but also to the jury who each year have to make the tough choice of a winner among the high calibre and excellent applicants. This Award of $10,000 will be selected by the same jury as the Plaskett and allow the lucky recipient to travel and make art in Europe for three months. Nancy will be in Montreal to attend the Plaskett/Petry Award Reception to be held at the Musee d’art contemporain in May and to personally congratulate the first winner! Her gallery, the beaux-arts des Ameriques will also generously host an RCA exhibition and opening reception the night before.
