Bronze Winner Liz Mac

The 2017 Sobey Art Award winner, Ursula Johnson, has spent the year since doing what artists do: Working. She also moved from Dartmouth to the south shore, but no matter where she is you’re keeping an eye on her vital, intense installations. “This is tres cool! Such a great honour to be voted by the community for Best Visual Artist,” she says. “It has been a super-crazy-busy few years with working on so many new projects and travelling around meeting so many folks. Halifax has been a great home base for me in helping me to establish my career as an artist and Halifax has also supported my collaborative duo, KINUK, that I have with my wife, Angella Parsons. We both look forward to collaborating more with local artists and musicians and to what 2019 will bring. Thank you!”
