This year due to the Provincial Stay-At-Home-Order the Lakehead University Student Juried Exhibition was held online only on the Thunder Bay Art Gallery’s website. Visitors to the website were encouraged to vote for their favourite work of art until MAY 30.
After receiving over 500 online votes, The Gallery announces this year’s winner of the People’s Choice Award is:
A huge congratulations to Adele Agostino for winning the People’s Choice Award! The Department of Visual Arts is exceptionally proud of all our students this year as they worked under less than ideal circumstances and still managed to create thought provoking, beautiful and inspiring works of art. We hope the community of Thunder Bay was also inspired and found enjoyment in the online exhibition and we thank everyone who visited the show and cast their vote.
– Dr. Kristy Holmes, Chair, Department of Visual Arts
Congratulations to Adele Augustino and all participating artists! The Gallery is so proud to share your works online this year, and we’re thrilled that so many people voted from near and far.
