Still from Graeme Pattersons Grudge Match.
  • Still from Graeme Patterson's Grudge Match.

Today, the 2010 Sobey Art Award longlist was announced, which means that there are 25 artists right now dreaming of what they can do with the $50,000 winnings. Locally, Graeme Patterson, nominated last year, returns, and we're really happy to see Lucie Chan on that list too. Although Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby haven't lived here in quite awhile, they still have strong ties to the region. Should be an interesting race.

The Long List:

Lucie Chan
Graeme Patterson
Mario Doucette
Vanessa Paschakarnis
Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby

West Coast and Yukon
Mark Soo
Kevin Schmidt
Isabelle Pauwels
Jeremy Shaw
Brendan Lee Satish Tang

Praries and the North
Daniel Barrow
Wally Dion
Heather Benning
The Cedar Tavern Singers
Robyn Moody

Diane Borsato
Aleesa Cohene
Brendan Fernandes
Will Munro
Jon Sasaki

Pascal Grandmaison
Patrick Bernatchez
Adad Hannah
Karen Tam

The shortlist will be announced on June 15, and the winner will be announced at the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal on November 18. Which means no host Seamus O'Regan for you this year.

What's that? Don't understand what the awards are all about? The longlisted Cedar Tavern Singers can help. Click on the link for "The Sobey Art Award" song.

Survey Asks

Now that we're keeping the Khyber, what should we do with it?

  • Get Mike Holmes to come renovate it.
  • Throw one bitchin' party.
  • Put a stadium in it?
  • Let it sit there, unused, for a decade.
