Artist Mary Pratt wins national honour
A national honour was bestowed on painter Mary Pratt last week at The Rooms when the Society of Canadian Artists recognized her with an honorary life membership into the SCA.
Whether it's cod fillets on tin foil, a poppyseed cake or a plastic container of peaches, she transforms simple domestic objects into a piece of work that can only be described as a Mary Pratt.
The CBC's Beth Macdonell recently paid a visit to Pratt's St. John's home. Pratt generously gave Macdonell a tour of her unique house, and insight into the process that makes her one of the province's best-known artists.
