Ingrid Mary Percy Award Artist for 34th Annual ArtsNL Arts Awards. “Every year, ArtsNL puts out a public call inviting artists from across the province to forward their proposal for the artwork that could be used at the event to award each of the honourees and winners. This year, the selected artist was Ingrid Percy. Percy created a new series of six serigraphs, each 22” x 30” on acid-free archival paper, which explores the theme of Flora in Newfoundland and Labrador. Percy hopes the artwork she creates “will symbolize Newfoundland and Labrador, serving as a celebration of place and the people who live here, who are rooted here, who grow, live, and die here.” Symbolically, Percy sees the artworks as “an acknowledgement of beauty and the importance of diversity and difference as well as being a metaphor for survival, resilience, regeneration, place, life, and beauty.” More info is available here:” Video/ June 20, 2019.
