WAM May 26-27 EVA Awards pt.1 - Mary Pratt
She says it's the only thing she's good at. Well, if you're as good at that one thing as Mary Pratt is, one thing may be just enough. Last night at the Excellence in Visual Arts Awards at the Rooms, the Society of Canadian Artists reinforced to Mary Pratt just how good they think she is. They recognized Pratt with an honourary life Membership into the SCA. Whether it's her 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. Last night, Margaret Walsh best, of the Society of Canadian Artists presented Mary Pratt with her award.
